Join in the wrap-up of the 2018-19 course by taking in participants’ project presentations and a special keynote address from Dr. G. Ross Baker, titled “Translating Measuring and Monitoring Safety to the Canadian Healthcare System: Establishing Proof of Concept and Scale-Up Strategies.”
“Charles Vincent, Susan Burnett and Jane Carthey developed the Measuring and Monitoring Framework for Safety in 2013 in the UK as an approach to broaden the capabilities of front-line teams, leadership and boards to understand and improve patient safety. The framework has been tested in a Canadian demonstration project involving eight teams from seven organizations across Canada. Teams in the Canadian project successfully applied the framework in a range of clinical environments, but often struggled to fully embrace the new ways of thinking required.
Dr. Baker’s presentation will outline the rationale for a new approach to thinking and acting on safety, identify key lessons learned in the demonstration project and outline the challenges of scaling up these efforts in Canadian healthcare.” (Source: W21C)
