Registration Now Open for the MHA Keystone Center PSO RCA² Workshop

Posted on July 26, 2019

Registration is now open for the MHA Keystone Center Patient Safety Organization (PSO) Root Cause Analysis & Action (RCA²) workshop, taking place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 8 at the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, Lansing.

The RCA² method helps determine what, why and how an incident occurred and outlines steps to prevent it from happening again. Furthermore, it improves safety and standardizes processes organizationwide to produce effective and sustainable actions that will prevent future patient harm.

Jim Bagian, MD, PE, director, Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety, Ann Arbor, and professor, University of Michigan; and Joe DeRosier, PE, CSP, program manager, Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety, will serve as facilitators for the event.

Bagian and DeRosier helped develop the RCA² process, which assists in the implementation of sustainable systems-based improvements. The Oct. 8 training session will be based on the National Patient Safety Foundation’s RCA²: Improving Root Cause Analyses and Actions to Prevent Harm guidelines.

The event is open to all MHA members. Registration is $550 for MHA Keystone Center PSO members and $650 for MHA members that are not MHA Keystone Center PSO members. 

Members with questions should contact the MHA Keystone Center.
