On October 17, WHA is offering a one-day session focused on patient safety tools and concepts, including an emphasis on the deviation management process, and discussion on a variety of practical tools including FMEA, RCA2, ACA and risk-based decision making and data management. Faculty includes Kelly Court, WHA chief quality officer, and Alex Hunt, quality assurance manager, Community Blood Center, Appleton. Hunt is well-known in Wisconsin quality leadership circles and has served as director of patient safety for Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) and was the quality director for the ThedaCare system.
“Patient Safety Tools and Concepts” will launch WHA’s new Quality Forum, a series of day-long education events that will address high priority topics for hospital quality leaders and others involved in quality improvement in Wisconsin hospitals and health systems. The series includes topics such as medical staff quality, survey readiness, meeting external reporting requirements and more, and presenters for each will share topic expertise and best practice applications.
