In recent years, it has become clear that the nature of the relationship among healthcare providers influences patient care. Quality of care and patient safety are both dependent on communication, teamwork, and collaboration. Unfortunately, intimidating and disruptive behavior threatens the performance and productivity of the healthcare team and undermines a culture of safety. All healthcare professionals must be aware of the potential danger and negative impact of these types of behaviors—not only on patient care, but also on staff working relationships and collaboration.

Improving the quality of healthcare is a national initiative and is mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. According to the Medicare Conditions of Participation (COPs), a healthcare organization’s governing body is responsible for ensuring that clear expectations for safety are established. It must, for example, implement an effective and ongoing Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. Such a program tracks and analyzes adverse events in order to determine preventive actions throughout the hospital. This course seeks to enhance your appreciation of this process and promote your active involvement. This can help to reduce adverse events, thereby improving patient care outcomes. This course will teach you how to deal with adverse events at your facility. You will learn: • What adverse events are and how to respond to them • What sentinel events and serious reportable events are, and how to respond to them • Strategies for preventing adverse events

Sometimes restraining or secluding a patient can prevent injury or save lives. Improper use of restraint, however, can cause physical or psychological injury or death. Therefore, restraint and seclusion should never be used as first choices. Instead, they should be used as last resorts and only when absolutely necessary. Patients retain certain rights, including the right to receive care in a safe setting, during treatment. These guidelines are designed to: • Protect individual rights, safety, and dignity • Help your organization comply with regulatory standards Please note: Restraint and seclusion must be applied in accordance with the facility policy and state law and regulations. Some state regulations differ and, generally speaking, the stricter of the two should take precedence unless it conflicts with federal law. For example, some states may not allow the involvement of clinical psychologists. Please consult your supervisor if you have questions.

Performance improvement has earned increased scrutiny from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Organizations are now required to collect and review specific data, simplify processes, and report findings to a governing board. The Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and accrediting guidance have always required collection of quality assurance and performance improvement data, but now surveyors are requesting documentation of the performance improvement (PI) efforts. The expectation is that leadership will engage frontline staff in the efforts to ensure the realistic expectations, effectiveness, and sustainability of projects. This course will walk you through the requirements, methodologies, and processes of a Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program. The results of an effective program will: • Improve quality and safety • Increase employee and customer satisfaction • Build a collaborative environment among teams • Increase efficiency around processes

Any time there is a transition of care, there is a risk of patients receiving fragmented care. Miscommunication can occur as responsibilities for care are transferred from one provider to another. This often results in adverse events, emergency department (ED) visits, and often rehospitalization. Preventing hospital readmissions is a national focus of healthcare reform because readmissions often reflect poor quality of care and result in increased costs for health insurers, the government, and patients. This course will help you: • Appreciate challenges in transitioning care • Improve your communication skills to ensure patient safety during transitions • Do your part to prevent adverse events and reduce hospital readmissions
