Online Seminars Provide Tips for Safety Success

Date: October 15, 2009

In August, the Center for Innovation in Quality Patient Care launched a series of live, Web-based seminars to provide information on quality improvement and patient safety topics.

The hour-long webinars—which are also available for download after the live events—feature presentations from Hopkins experts that are followed by question-and-answer sessions. They are targeted for anyone who plays a role in their organization’s quality and safety efforts, from hospital executives to frontline health care workers.

The first two seminars covered the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program and prevention of surgical site infections, respectively. Upcoming webinars include:

•    Nov. 17: Making Hand Hygiene the Number-One Priority Among Health Care Workers. This webinar will focus on key elements of an effective hand-hygiene promotion program that includes monitoring of hand-hygiene practices and obtaining staff compliance.

•    Dec. 3: Conducting Safe and Effective Kaizen Events in a Clinical Setting. Participants will learn the keys to safely and successfully conduct rapid improvement events—or Kaizens—in clinical settings.
