Threat Management Systems for Patient and Caregiver Safety: Staying "Left of Boom"
Our February TMIT webinar addressing "active shooter events" generated substantial interest in Threat Management for healthcare systems ranging from high-frequency/low-impact events to the low-frequency/high-impact active shooter events, which are dramatically increasing in number. The polling of our audience of quality and safety leaders revealed intense interest and a clear request for more information in this area.
In response, we are delighted to present our March webinar on Threat Management Systems for Patient and Caregiver Safety. Dr. Greg Botz, a critical care leader from MD Anderson and the director of their simulation center, will be joined by two of our prior speakers, Vicki King and Chief Bill Adcox of the University of Texas Police Department at Houston. Ray Gerwitz, the Director of the University of Texas Police Department at Houston, will address systems issues to support threat management.
The team will take us through the prevention continuum known as "left of boom" to focus on prevention and mitigation of an event, or the "boom."
We will also revisit the call to action to reduce preventable exposure of children to ionizing radiation through support of a Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goal: "Patient Safety for Children Undergoing CT Imaging." The contributions of Dr. Steve Swensen, Professor of Radiology at the Mayo Clinic, and others will be addressed.
