She will share the terrific learning her organization has gleaned from mortality reviews, having worked with Dr. Jeanne Huddleston from the Mayo Clinic who are the leaders in this field. Her insights are just what our surveys have told us from frontline safety leaders in our National Research Test Bed.
Dr. Huddleston's work at the Mayo Clinic has generated one of the strongest positive reactions we have ever had in our nearly 100 monthly sequential webinars. The breakthrough work that can have enormous impact on the patient safety of healthcare institutions.
Following Patty's presentation, a reactor panel will discuss how the insights can be applied to frontline care.
