SafetyQuest

Description

Modern healthcare is complex and has many opportunities for error. To ensure patient safety, hospitals and healthcare systems must continually strive to work together as a team, create a culture of patient safety, and identify and mitigate risks. SafetyQuest is a sequential series of online CME gaming modules (levels 1 - 4) that provide an innovative and immersive experience to understanding the underlying causes of patient safety issues. This unique educational program emphasizes a problem-solving approach to preventing errors in all healthcare settings and seeks to ensure that patients are provided with care that supports the key quality aims of the Institute of Medicine. Throughout the series, learners will work to save patients from preventable harm and will gain problem solving quality improvement and safety tools to approach these issues. Case-based scenarios using multiple game modalities will be used to put these principles into practice and save future lives.

What you will learn

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Integrate best practice patient safety and goals of care (GOC) communication techniques (e.g. IPASS handoffs, SBAR communication, stop the line/CUS words/call for help early, debriefing, GOC documentation) into practice with teams to reduce the risk of adverse events and increase patient safety.
  • Utilize principles from the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals to reduce the risk of adverse events and increase patient safety.
  • Apply QI tools and concepts such as PDCA, A3, high reliability, and the swiss cheese model to improve the quality of care for your patients.
