Patient Safety Lessons Learned in Critical Care and Achieving STEEEP Health Care
 Session Overview
Please join us for an exciting session in which Dr. Gregory H. Botz, Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, will present on "Patient Safety Lessons Learned in Critical Care".

As a faculty member of the Clinical Safety & Effectiveness program, Dr. Botz is on the front lines of patient safety. He will describe some of the lessons he has learned on integrating quality improvement and patient safety into the daily fabric of caring for patients by looking for ways to improve outcomes while decreasing waste and rework. This requires the willingness to change and the tools/methods needed to make improvements but can be accomplished by engaging individuals in clinical leadership positions in improvement initiatives aligned with the organizational strategic goals.

Following Dr. Botz, Dr. Donald Kennerly, vice president of patient safety and chief patient safety officer for Baylor Health Care System in Dallas, will give us insight on and the motivation behind the recently published book Achieving STEEEP Health Care, which tells the story of Baylor Health Care System's continuing quality journey and discusses newer approaches to accountable care that strive to simultaneously improve the patient experience of care, improve population health, and reduce per capita costs of healthcare. Dr Kennerly will share practical strategies and lessons in the areas of people, culture, and processes that have contributed to dramatic improvements in patient and operational outcomes at Baylor Health Care System.

 Patient Safety Advocate
Jennifer Dingman
The Voice of Patient and Family

Jennifer Dingman realized, after her mother's death in 1995 due to errors in medical diagnoses and treatment, that there is little to no help available for patients and their families in similar situations. This life-changing experience left her feeling vulnerable, and she decided to dedicate her life to help prevent medical tragedies from happening to others.
