Register:  Click here
Event Description:

THIS MEETING IS LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF THE NCQC PSO ONLY

Patients present to the ED for both acute and chronic pain. How that pain is managed will be important to preventing future addiction or perpetuating a potential substance abuse problem.  Additionally, appropriate management of post operative and chronic pain in both the in-patient and out-patient settings may not take into account the risks and benefits of short and long-term opioid use. In fact 99% of doctors prescribe opioids for longer than the CDC Guideline recommends. 

Conditions in which opioids are commonly prescribed are: any type of acute, chronic back, joint, neuropathic and dental pain, fibromyalgia and chronic headaches. Many patients believe that only opioids provide effective pain relief and often ask for them by name (Percocet. Vicodin, etc.). Come to this Safe Table to share your organizations’s experiences and learn from others in an effort to address how to improve pain management in various settings.

A Safe Table provides a forum for NCQC PSO members to network and exchange patient safety experiences and best practices in an open, uninhibited and legally protected environment. Most importantly, it helps build a strong and supportive patient safety community where collective learning is valued and collegial relationships are supported and encouraged.

Safe Tables are legally protected under the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 that allow health care providers to convene and have open dialogue about patient safety and quality of care issues. All attendees are required to sign confidentiality agreements and all information shared will remain confidential and privileged.

Attendees should bring 1 or 2 de-identified events that occurred in their organization to share in an open discussion. Remove any patient or provider identifiable information. The Safe Table discussions take place within the NCQC Patient Safety Evaluation System to encourage open and robust dialogue about these events and what can be done to prevent them without fear of discovery.  Also bring your prescribing protocols for discussion!
