On-site guide for Spring WorkshopGreat Lakes Partnership for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation Network members from 34 hospitals across Michigan attended the MHA Keystone Center Spring Workshop: Preventing Harm Across the Board April 17 at The Henry, Dearborn. Attendees included registered nurses and safety and quality officers, directors and coordinators.

The event featured two breakout sessions, which gave participants an opportunity to engage with peers on a variety of topics and share lessons learned. Members benefited from this format as it allowed them to learn best practices from their peers in four specific areas – pressure ulcers, adverse drug events, patient falls, and venous thromboembolism – and how to implement processes in their own facilities to reduce harm.

Opioids were also a topic of discussion, with an introduction of an Opioid Knowledge Self-Assessment.

Overall, members were introduced to new tools, learned new information on identifying specific areas of harm and discussed how to apply high reliability concepts in their roles to ensure patients remain safe while visiting a hospital.
