The Beginning: What Nurses Are Taught to Promote Patient Safety and How It Fails

This presentation discussed how nurses have been taught to perceive errors and why the most common safety strategies are not effective. Learners also understood how a robust reporting culture benefits all healthcare providers and recognizes their own biases towards errors.

Making the Data Work For You: What We’ve Learned from 823,250 Med Errors:

When an adverse event occurs in healthcare, many times the individual that made the error is blamed. This educational opportunity enabled learners to identify how errors occur in healthcare and provide strategies for investigating causes of errors. Additionally, learners were able to differentiate between a good investigation and a bad investigation of an event and understand the necessity of looking beyond human error to the system causes and the behavioral choices that were made.
