Event Description:

Self Injurious Behavior: Designing Solutions

Self Injurious behavior (SIB) can be defined as the deliberate, repetitive, impulsive, non-lethal harming of oneself. It includes cutting, scratching, burning, punching self or objects, infecting oneself, inserting objects in body openings and other various forms of bodily harm. Self-injury is also linked to eating disorders, autism, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression, and anxiety disorders. Managing patients with this disorder, identifying triggers and underlying issues can be challenging. What is the best approach to manage this disorder and what treatment modality is effective? Sharing patient management experiences will lead to improved treatment plans, improved patient safety and use of best practices.

What is a Safe Table?

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.

Who should attend?

Attendance is restricted to DSOHF NCQC PSO member staff. Quality/Risk Management staff are encouraged to register. Due to space limitations, each facility will be limited to three (3) attendees. If a facility desires to send additional attendees, a wait list will be maintained.

What should I bring?

Attendees should bring 1 or 2 de-identified SIB related 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.

What is the goal?

The goal is to learn from each other, share best practices, implement improvements within DSOHF, mitigate patient harm and lastly, identify how the NCQC PSO can be of further assistance in addressing these patient safety issues.
