Topic

 

Implementing Safety and Quality Improvement Into Medical Practice

 

“Medicine used to be simple, ineffective and relatively safe, but now it is complex, effective and potentially dangerous.” Sir Cyril Chantler

As healthcare providers we need to be prepared for inevitable changes in the healthcare system and strive:

  • To improve the patient and family experience with healthcare delivery
  • To be efficient in the delivery of care
  • To provide the ‘Safest’ and ‘Highest’ quality care that we can for our patients (Zero preventable harm to patients and staff)

The overriding component that leading to Serious Safety Events is a deviation from standard of care. To eliminate serious harm in healthcare we must improve key processes design, embrace high reliability culture and enrich human factor integration

As good stewards of medicine we need to be fluent in systems-based thinking, problem analysis, communication skills and appropriate management of medical errors
