Safety Improvement Projects Overview
Teamwork and Communication
There needs to be a shift, a focus on how to improve team skills such as communication and teamwork, thereby improving patient safety culture and patient outcomes. Teamwork and Communication assist organizations in implementing team training to improve attitudes, increase knowledge and improve behavioural skills, leading to improved patient safety culture and positive patient outcomes.
Medication Safety at Care Transitions
Medications are the most common treatment intervention used in healthcare around the world. Medication safety issues can impact health outcomes, length of stay in a healthcare facility, readmission rates, and overall costs to Canada's healthcare system. Medication Safety at Care Transitions assists organizations in improving medication safety at discharge for frail elderly patients with poly-morbidity.
Enhanced Recovery Canada
Patients undergoing colorectal surgery experience longer hospital stays and more complications because evidence-based practices in the areas of nutrition, opioid sparing analgesia, hydration, mobility and other surgical bets practices are not consistently applied or adopted. Enhanced Recovery Canada will lead to improved outcomes and system efficiencies for colorectal surgery patients.
