2017 Threats & Safety
Why Hospitals Should Fly: Mortality Reviews and
Harm from Omission, Med Tac, and Healthcare Violence

Session Overview

This is our 100th sequential monthly webinar delivered to our National Research Test Bed. It is only fitting that we have a super star speaker line up for you.

John Nance is one of our nation’s greatest patient safety experts and advocates. He is nationally-known author of 19 major books, five non-fiction, plus 13 fiction bestsellers. His books Why Hospitals Should Fly and Charting the Course are both must reads for patient safety leaders. He will give us a head’s up on threats and Red Cover Report case studies will help you serve.

Dr. Jeanne Huddleston and her colleagues at the Mayo Clinic have undertaken breakthrough work that can have enormous impact on the patient safety of healthcare institutions. She will tie together opportunities for improvement in 2017.

Liana Orsolini, PhD., RN, ANEF, FAAN, the Care Delivery and Advanced Practice System Consultant for Clinical Excellence and Innovation for Bon Secours Health System, will join to discuss the Mortality Review Journey.

Dr. Greg Botz and Chief Bill Adcox, two of our nation’s leading threat scientists will address the progress on bystander care for the most common causes of death in the healthy and new insights on healthcare workplace violence.
