Speakers select from the following list of topics.
Care of the Caregiver:
After an unintentional adverse event, a healthcare organization's first priority is the patient and his family. But caregivers involved in these incidents are experiencing a psychological emergency, and they need the support of their peers. These speakers can discuss the delicate issue of caring for caregivers after unintended errors that harm patients.
Speakers can discuss communication among patients, caregivers, and leadership.
Culture, Leadership, and Trustees:
Speakers address some of the high-impact areas of healthcare by speaking to the leadership of organizations.
After an unintentional adverse event, patients and their families want to know what happened. Disclosing adverse events is difficult, but these speakers can discuss strategies to help your organization understand the importance of disclosure and how to do it effectively.
Health Information Technology (HIT):
Speakers can discuss new developments in Health Information Technology as these innovations change how care is delivered, and how caregivers interact with patients.
These infections are extremely harmful to patients but can be prevented with generally low-cost solutions. These speakers can address the growing issue of healthcare-associated infections in areas such as central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs); hand hygiene; influenza prevention; surgical-site infections; care of the ventilated patient; multidrug-resistant organism (MDRO) infections [including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), and Clostridium difficile infections (CDIs)]; and catheter-related urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).
Speakers address medication reconciliation, pharmacist leadership and other ways to engage patient and healthcare providers to reduce medication errors.
Partnership for Patients:
CMS' program, Partnership for Patients, is focused on reducing hospital acquired conditions and adverse events by engaging patients and healthcare organizations around solutions.
Patient and Family Involvement:
Patients and their families are a critical part of the healthcare team. These speakers offer insights and solutions to engage them in a positive way, to improve the overall care of the organization and to enhance communication between professional caregivers and patients and their families, as well as how to engage patients for simple, elegant, and often low-cost solutions to some of your most difficult problems.
Enhancing the patient experience can improve health outcomes. These speakers give perspective on how to increase patient satisfaction.
Speakers can discuss personalized medicine, which is a young but rapidly advancing field of healthcare that is informed by each person's unique clinical, genetic, genomic, and environmental information. Because these factors are different for every person, the nature of diseases including their onset, their course, and how they might respond to drugs or other interventions is as individual as the people who have them. Because an individual's genome influences his or her likelihood of developing (or not developing) a broad range of medical conditions, personalized medicine focuses strongly on wellness and disease prevention. Diagnoses are made with the particular patients genome in mind, as well.
Quality and Patient Safety:
Speakers address improving the quality of healthcare delivered as well as ways to enhance patient safety.
