First, Do No Harm ® Films Form Basis for Workshop
MedSun: Newsletter #2, March 2006
The Partnership for Patient Safety is offering a workshop based on its film series used in 39 countries around the world to promote quality and safety in health care settings. First, Do No Harm: A Workshop to Heighten Patient Safety Awareness includes viewing the three films and then progressing to discussions and activities that can be custom-designed to each particular audience. Each film presents a fictionalized case study based on actual events from malpractice claims files that is intended to stimulate reactions and suggestions for best practices in moving health care organizations toward systems-oriented patient safety and effective management. The workshop, whose scope can range from a 2-hour high-level overview to a 2-day in-depth process, is appropriate for medical staffs, clinical and support departments, integrated delivery teams, administrative teams, and boards of directors.
