More Than 250 Leaders Gather to Examine Patient Safety and Quality
Posted on September 20, 2018
The 2018 MHA Patient Safety & Quality Symposium drew more than 250 clinical and administrative leaders to learn from national safety and quality experts and local hospital and health system teams. Topics included how to create a systems approach to safety that focuses on culture, teamwork and patient engagement; how to continue making strides in high reliability and transparency; and how to develop more effective workforce safety and wellness strategies. Tejal Gandhi, MD, chief clinical and safety officer, International Health Institute, Boston, and Bryan Sexton, PhD, director of the Patient Safety Center for Duke University Health System, Durham, NC, were featured speakers.
The annual MHA Keystone Center Speak-up! Award was presented to Kassandra Gauna, RN, Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital, Charlotte (see related article). The award is presented to individuals or teams in MHA Keystone Center Patient Safety Organization who demonstrate a commitment to the prevention of harm.
During the event, participants had opportunities to connect with 20 organizations that exhibited products and services to enhance safety and quality. Updates and photos from the event can be found on the MHA Facebook page and by following the #MHASymposium hashtag on Twitter. Questions about the symposium should be directed to Sam R.
