Cost $139.00
Overview: Medical errors may be unpreventable, but preventing harm to the patient is often an option. Unfortunately no progress has taken place over the last decade in reducing the preventable medical mishaps. In 1998, the landmark IOM study estimated 98,000 preventable fatalities per year. The latest research shows an estimate of 210,000 to 440,0000 preventable fatalities a year! Paradoxically, healthcare continues to be decades behind other industries in terms of creating safer systems. Errors in healthcare are usually provoked by weak or inadequate systems within and across healthcare organizations.

Why should you attend: Patient safety is elemental to Hippocratic Oath and fundamental to quality in healthcare. Improving patient safety, reducing medical errors and providing comprehensive quality care is a challenge faced by healthcare organizations globally. From newborns burnt alive in the incubators, radiation overexposure to medication mix-ups and hospital-acquired infections, one is all too familiar with such grim accidents happening routinely in hospitals. Thus, there is an urgent need for a paradigm shift in healthcare to enhance quality, safety, and reliability.

  • Why unsafe work happens on its own
  • Everyone doing their jobs right is grossly insufficient
