Presented by: Peter Lachman M.D. MPH. M.B.B.Ch., FRCPCH, FCP (SA), FRCPI
It is over two decades since the ground breaking “To Err Is Human” research report was published but progress in addressing adverse events has only been variable at best. Obviously the initial question to that fact becomes “What do we need to do to keep patients and providers safe in healthcare?” Many have theorized about the action we need to accomplish to prevent harm, but the core problem remains one of design and more importantly, implementation.
Nietzsche reminds us that “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” But what then is the “why” behind the patient safety movement? Why don’t we accept our inability to deliver the right care every time? Most fundamentally of all, why do we need to change?
In this highly praised presentation, Dr. Peter Lachman, CEO of the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) imagines how examining the future awakens us to the importance of what we, as actors in specific roles, do not yet know.Dr. Peter Lachman will go through the fifteen actions that he believes will help the imagined future of healthcare, become ever so much closer to our present experience.
