Evolving from eliminating one harm in all hospitals to eliminating all harms across a health system

January 18, 2016

If we want to get serious about patient safety, we need to approach it with the same rigor and discipline as we do in finance. We can no longer focus on tackling a single event, but instead need to overhaul our view of patient safety at the system-level. During this webinar, Dr. Peter Pronovost discusses how to design governance, quality management structures, technology systems, and a leadership culture that eliminate harm across an entire system.

One of the world’s leading authorities on patient safety, Dr. Pronovost has developed a scientifically proven method for reducing the deadly infections associated with central line catheters. His simple but effective checklist protocol virtually eliminated such infections in ICUs state by state across the US, reducing these infections  nationally by 80%, saving thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars annually.
