Prompt, proactive support can provide clinicians with the confidence and means to recover and return to satisfying professional practice. The Oregon Patient Safety Commission is hosting a one-day training for healthcare facilities, medical liability insurers, and healthcare provider associations that want to build or enhance their programs for providing this important peer support.

Avoid Band-Aid Solutions: Strengthening Adverse Event Investigations

If you missed this training last fall, don’t miss out again on what others have found to be incredibly valuable!

Get the most out of your event investigations by attending this one-day course on identifying the causes and contributing factors of system failures and developing strong action plans. Learn root cause identification strategies to ensure that your organization is effectively analyzing underlying systems to determine where changes might reduce risk. Then hone your skills at developing strong, system-level action plans that ensure your investigations result in preventing similar adverse events in the future.

Regardless of the healthcare setting in which you work, if you are a healthcare professional who is responsible for the analysis and internal or external reporting of adverse events, this training can help you increase the value of your investigations of serious, less serious, and near miss events. By attending this training and strengthening your investigations, you can increase the quality of care you provide and decrease costs associated with repeated adverse events and readmissions.
