Next Webinar: Above All, Do No Harm

Much of the current health care research is aimed at improving patient safety and quality of care. The need for these improvements was brought to light ten years ago by the Institute of Medicine's groundbreaking report, To Err Is Human.

Today that work is far from over.

The next webinar in INQRI's Spring 2011 Webinar Series: The Future of Nursing series will focus on the work still to be done to realize the promise of this report.

Above All, Do No Harm

The webinar will be led by Christopher Landrigan, M.D.M, M.P.H., whose team recently published a study, "Temporal Trends in Rates of Patient Harm Resulting from Medical Care," in the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Landrigan and his colleagues examined the rates of harm in ten North Carolina hospitals from January 2002 to December 2007, to determine whether there were any widespread improvements in preventable harms and overall rate of harms. This webinar will serve as a discussion platform to identify the resources and practices that are needed to translate effective safety interventions into routine practice and to monitor health care safety over time.
