Course Title: Patient Safety Simulation Workshop
Date: Friday, June 12, 2015
Total Length: 6 hours
Registration Fee: $350.00
Target Audience: Healthcare Providers, Dentists and Hospital Administrators
This workshop to include the following sections:
Patient Safety Education Overview – PSEP … Bridge to Practice is a comprehensive program in patient safety, developed by world leaders in patient safety specifically to help clinicians to become “leaders” in improving the safety of health care delivery. The incorporation of unique simulation-based scenarios, as well as evidenced based practice, and current literature support this 6-hour workshop to ensure this experience will be outstanding and provide the learner with useful materials on patient safety.
In this training, learners will review the general principles of patient safety and then work in teams on a quality assurance project that is relevant to their workplace setting. Skills stations will provide hands-on practice to demonstrate safety measures that can be implemented at their worksite. Finally, the teams will present their safety measures to the entire group as a method of sharing everyone’s experiences during this workshop.
Patient Safety Simulation Activities – The workshop will expand upon the knowledge learned during the educational program to include breakout sessions that form teams to work on pre-assigned quality assurance projects from their home institutions. Examples of such projects can include risks of falls, tracer methodology in medication dispensing, infection control from foley catheterizations in hospital setting, etc. Following the team workshop, the groups will work on their project in real time with simulated sessions in the Virtual Patient Care Center (VPCC) to assure an understanding of the problem, and develop a solution for prevention of future occurrences.
Presentations of the results of their findings will be given to the larger group to share the information found, and methods developed during the simulated experiences.
At the completion of this course, learners will be able to:
1. Actively participate in clinical experiences to identify high-risk situations, develop and implement solutions, and measure their impact.
2. Demonstrate the utility of quality/safety tools to brain-storm clinical situations (Nominal Group Process and Delphi), prioritize high-risk situations (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis-FEMA), and analyze adverse events (Root Cause Analysis-RCA including flow charts, cause and effect diagrams).
3. Analyze effective improved communication skills with: (A.) Colleagues completing patient care hand-offs; (B.) Patients communicating medical errors in a patient centered focus; and (C.) Families, discussion on care to improve family support.
