Surfing the Healthcare Tsunami: Bring Your Best Board – Applying It to Continuing Education
 Session Overview

Storytelling is a highly effective tool to engage all the stakeholders, and TMIT has just completed its most recent made-for-TV documentary entitled Surfing the Healthcare Tsunami: Bring Your Best Board™. This inspirational documentary highlights "extraordinary impact through ordinary things," and provides a call to action for all people interested in healthcare to repair, develop, and enhance the invisible safety net that keeps patients and caregivers safe.

This session will start with the viewing of the 53-minute documentary, followed by a panel discussion of nurses, trustees, and caregivers who will discuss strategies to use the documentary for continuing education, and raise awareness of critical quality and patient safety issues and drive engagement and actions at all levels of the organization.

Learning Objectives

After viewing this webinar you will understand:
  • that engaged leaders, practices that deliver predictable outcomes, and adoption of technologies that support leadership-driven practices are at the heart of patient safety.
  • the global crisis of harm and waste and the opportunity to move from harm to healing and from waste to value as hospitals move from a provider-centered, volume-driven economic care to a person-centered, value-driven care.
  • that great care and safe care exist at the intersection of leadership, practices, and technologies. An invisible safety net composed of these three threads keeps patients and caregivers safe.
  • stories from aviation, government, and industry that demonstrate the "4 Ts of Leadership" – how great leaders engage the head and heart to move the hands to action and the voice to teaching from within through Truth, Trust, Teamwork, and Training.
  • that the 5 Rights of Imaging™ can be used to reduce overuse, under-use, and misuse of imaging to reduce waste and harm while optimizing the value of innovations.
