July 20, 2015

This webcast was presented in two parts, each 20 minutes in length:

    Part 1: "Fundamentals of Patient Safety" Do you fully understand your fiduciary duties as board members in regards to patient safety and quality? What are the fundamentals of governance in quality and safety for all of your services and your community? What are the best ways to share patient stories in the board setting? These and more practical tools were shared.
    Part 2: "Fundamentals of Patient Safety" How can boards best lead on quality and safety into the future? How do you know you’re getting the data you need? Can you interpret the reports and charts you are receiving? How does transparency of your quality data serve your patients and your community? What are the changes underway for data measurement and reimbursements? Core questions you should ask and tools to understand the complicated language were shared.
