Event description

Description

Title:

Engaging patients in new ways: the PROSPECT Study


Speaker:

Dr David W. Bates, M.D., M.Sc.


Abstract:

Patient engagement is one of the potentially most powerful ways to improve safety and quality. We used two approaches to improve safety, quality and engagement:

1) implementation of the Patient SatisfActive® model, and

2) development and deployment of a patient-centered toolkit,

and evaluated their impact in intensive care and oncology as part of a study supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

Dr Bates will discuss the intervention and its impact on outcomes, and also some subsequent work carried out as part of a patient safety learning laboratory which represents a collaboration between systems engineering and a safety team
