Chasing Zero Leaders Toolbox: Your Action Pack
 Session Overview

Many healthcare leaders and consumers are just starting to realize that we are in a crisis, and that typical quality and safety programs are not preventing hospital accidents. Ground zero in the war on healthcare harm is not at the bedside ... it's in the boardroom. Ground zero is not where the accidents happen, but where leaders fund and approve the leadership, practice, and technology systems. Join us for an action-packed, rapid-fire discussion on the Hospital Leaders Toolbox, which provides leaders – from the boardroom to the front line – with concepts, tools, and resources to win the war on healthcare harm. TMIT is continually updating how-to guides for adopting the many innovations shown in the feature-length documentary, Chasing Zero, to serve your leadership, quality, and community teams.
