Event Description:

THIS MEETING IS LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF THE TQC PSO ONLY

Overview:

With so many concentrated insulin products available, it is critical that healthcare providers, diabetic educators and pharmacists develop reliable medication processes within and between healthcare settings to ensure effective insulin management. Correct conversion of concentrated insulins upon admission and discharge in conjunction with the hospital formulary can become a risk point for hypoglycemia as seen in our patient safety platform events. Come join us and share your events so all of us can learn how to identify and mitigate risk with concentrated insulins.

A Safe Table provides a forum for TCQ 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 TQC 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!

Today's leaders recognize the need to maximize productivity in their team and that can only happen when employees are committed and engaged. It's no surprise that actively engaged employees are 20 to 40 percent more productive in the workplace than those that aren't engaged. In order to have a team of high performing and successful employees, you need to know the best techniques to engage and motivate them. Not only does it make your job easier, coaching greatly improves employee performance when done correctly. While once considered a "soft" skill, coaching for high performance is now recognized as an effective method that produces better decision making skills, improved project management, and increased performance while lowering overall turnover.
Join Wes Pruett, as he helps you to understand how to tap into employee commitment to produce results in the workplace. He will unveil a five-step model for effective coaching that seasoned managers, supervisors, and emerging leaders alike will be able to implement in their workplaces.

Target Audience: Managers, supervisors, directors adn emerging leaders.

This webinar is on January 4 from 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Brochure

We are entering an era that will include an abundance of retiring and aging Baby Boomers and a shortage of healthcare workers. Understanding these workforce challenges; thinking innovatively, BIG and outside of the box; and thorough planning are key. The more organizational leaders embrace what is to come, generally, the more collaboration there will be. Having the right (and enough) talent is essential to avoiding an overworked staff, burnout and exodus. In addition to having warm bodies, retention and workplace enjoyment are essential. These factors also help strengthen your organization’s reputation and marketability, which influence new hires. Learn strategies that will help all healthcare leaders brace for impact, and be well prepared for the storm.

BROCHURE

Hospitals are ever increasingly establishing provider-based clinics of all types. While hospitals can enjoy increased revenues from provider-based clinics, compliance with all the rules and regulations is challenging.  The provider-based rule (PBR) is complex and there are definite ambiguities. Recent changes in the supervisory requirements for provider-based operations have created confusion and new compliance challenges.  Additionally, with Section 603 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, there is movement to change the rules and regulations relative to reimbursement for provider-based clinics.

N C Quality Center hands logo denoting that this is a Quality Center meeting TQC PSO Members Only: Safe Table on Health Care Technology: Frustrations and Fixes
When: Wednesday, January 17, 2018
Where: Nash Health Care System -- Rocky Mount, NC
Brochure: SafeTableFlyer_HeatlhInformation_January 2018.pdf
Register:  Click here
Event Description:

This meeting is open only to TQC PSO Member Hospitals 

Overview

Health care technology solutions (electronic health records, barcode medication administration systems, IV smart pumps and centralized monitoring) are intended to improve efficiency and make patient care safer. However, there are also times when the same technology “solutions” and equipment cause problems or interrupt existing clinical processes, resulting in frustration, workarounds and short cuts, delays, and even patient harm. 

With the amount of technology and equipment present in our health care organizations, the odds are high that your organization has experienced patient safety events related to health technology solutions. Join us at this Safe Table for an engaging discussion about health technology frustrations and fixes that impact clinical work processes and the work environment.

This Safe Table will feature Janey Barnes, PhD., Human Factors subject matter expert, who is the presenter for our fall series webinars involving human factors.  Dr. Barnes will present suggestions and best practices for implementing new health care technology and designing safer systems.

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.  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 NCQC PSO member organizations. To enrich the conversation, we ask that physician and nurse leaders, pharmacists, safety officers, risk managers,  informatics and IT team members, procurement/purchasing leaders, biomed technicians and other health care professionals affiliated with in-patient, out-patient, skilled nursing and long-term care facilities attend this Safe Table and come prepared to share.   

What should I bring?

Attendees are required to bring 1 or 2 de-identified concentrated insulin 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. We also invite you to bring and share copies of procedures, checklists and trainings that are being used in your organizations for sharing.

What is the goal?

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