Root Cause Analysis Workshop Available to MHA Keystone Center PSO Members
Registration is now open for the MHA Patient Safety Organization (PSO) Root Cause Analysis and Action (RCA²) Workshop, taking place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 20 at the VisTaTech Center in Livonia.
The interactive course is open only to MHA Keystone PSO members and will assist in the implementation of sustainable systems-based improvements within their organizations. Participants will be given an introduction to RCA² elements and learn how to improve their own RCA process.
The training will be facilitated by Jim Bagian, MD, PE, professor of engineering practice at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and founding director of the National Center for Patient Safety at the Veterans Health Administration. The training is based on the National Patient Safety Foundation’s RCA²: Improving Root Cause Analyses and Actions to Prevent Harm guidelines.
Prior to attending the RCA² training, hospitals will be required to submit the following information to the MHA Keystone Center PSO:
- At least two completed RCAs, each no more than one year old, via NextPlane
- The organization’s most recent culture survey data
These requirements will assist in strong implementation and sustainability of the new process. Additional instructions for the submissions are forthcoming. Details on another training, including its date and location, will also be provided soon. Questions regarding the training or registration should be directed to the MHA Keystone Center PSO.
