Registration Open for November Patient Safety Organization Events
Posted on October 18, 2017
The MHA Keystone Center Patient Safety Organization (PSO) will conduct two events for its members in November, and registration is now open.
A PSO Safe Table on Rural Health will occur from noon to 3 p.m. Nov. 28 at the Inn at Bay Harbor. The safe table will be particularly useful for healthcare organizations located in rural areas, which often experience different types of issues than their urban counterparts. These issues can include economic, cultural and social differences in the community that contribute to health disparities, as well as resource shortages in the facilities. The safe table will be an interactive forum to discuss prevailing barriers and successes and how to make improvements.
A Root Cause Analysis and Action (RCA²) Training will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 29 at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Robust RCAs are essential to the implementation of effective patient safety improvement efforts. The RCA² training will be facilitated by Jim Bagian, MD, PE, and Joe DeRoiser, PE, CSP, and is based on the National Patient Safety Foundation’s RCA²: Improving Root Cause Analyses and Actions to Prevent Harm guidelines.
Members wishing to attend the RCA² training must first submit certain materials to the MHA Keystone Center PSO.
- At least two completed RCAs, each no more than one year old, via NextPlane
- The organization’s most recent culture survey data
Overall, MHA Keystone Center PSO workshops, trainings and other educational opportunities are intended to teach attendees how to eliminate patient harm, explore and discuss important health topics, and learn from industry experts. For more information on any of these offerings, contact Adam Novak at the MHA.
