Announcing Pre-Summit Sessions

Half-Day CANDOR: Communication and Optimal Resolution Session
Optimizing Readiness to Respond and Prevent Unexpected Patient Harm

February 3, 2017 from 8:00am – Noon

Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, Dana Point, CA


The Patient Safety Movement Foundation is offering a pre-Summit half-day information and readiness assessment session for leaders interested in optimizing a Conflict Resolution Program as a fully integrated component of Patient Safety & Continuous Quality Improvement Programs.

Why Should CANDOR be Implemented?
Using an interrupted time series design in a single health system, Lambert et al. found that the communication and resolutions approach had a significant impact on medical liability processes and outcomes. The CANDOR approach:

Lead to sustainable process/system improvements that reduce preventable harm events

Increased the number of interdisciplinary event analyses leading to process improvements

Associated with a significant increase in patient and family engagement in patient safety efforts

  • Increased the number of incident reports
  • Decreased the number of claims
  • Reduced legal fees and costs
  • Reduced total costs per claim, settlement amounts, and self-insurance costs
  • Associated with an ongoing decrease in the time to resolution following the patient harm event
