CHPSO Webinar: Safer-System Redesign
Moving Patient Safety Towards a Proactive Future


As the Patient Safety movement continues to evolve, many organizations have proposed the move from our standard reactive approach to one that proactively looks to address potential patient harm before it even occurs. At the Stanford Health Care Center for Advancing Patient Safety, a team of Engineers, Physicians, and Nurses have developed and implemented a novel, proactive method of providing safer patient care within complex health systems. In this presentation, you’ll learn about their unique model for melding safety sciences, their approach to engaging stakeholders across the health continuum, and some examples of the work they have done at Stanford.
