Adverse Events - A SafetyQ Course
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
