Eliminating Preventable Patient Harm

Reframe medical mistakes into improvement activities

This 2-day workshop includes a basic training using mistake-proofing techniques proven to address mistakes at Virginia Mason.

Hands-on activities help participants practice analyzing problems they bring and employing the methods successfully. Processes are mapped out to address common mistake-prone situations, PDSAs are simulated and participants practice capturing data to measure improvement.

This workshop will give you an understanding of:

  • How medical mistakes can be reframed into improvement opportunities by identifying root cause and preventing the mistake from happening again.
  • How to analyze quality defects using lean tools to sort them and focus improvement efforts.
  • How to apply mistake-proofing methodology to facilitate correct actions, prevent errors and mitigate negative impact of errors.
  • After this workshop, you will be able to use your practice to coach and mentor others in identifying quality defects and generate ideas to fix root causes.
