The role of risk management in patient safety: maturing from a reactive to proactive perspective

Wednesday, March 23
1 - 2 p.m. (CT)
2 - 3 p.m. (ET)
Noon - 1 p.m. (MT)
11 a.m. - Noon (PT)

This webinar describes how patient safety stems from mindfulness and a constant, unrelenting effort to create, nurture and sustain learning systems in work settings. The framework components that comprise these learning systems are well known in 2016, and healthcare organizations are beginning to apply them with increasing success. Risk managers are a key component in supporting and sustaining these learning systems. They ensure through thoughtful responses to adverse events that the learning system stay intact, and the psychological safety necessary to support a learning environment is maintained.

This webinar will help participants to:

  • Describe the framework components necessary to achieve safe and reliable operational excellence
  • Reflect on the ways that risk management responses to adverse events supports or undermines highly effective learning systems
  • Learn about the ways to move from reactive to proactive work settings
