You’re invited to attend a session with one of the world’s leading authorities on patient safety, Dr Peter Pronovost.
The Department of Health and Human Services, in conjunction with EY, welcomes Dr Pronovost to Victoria for an exclusive presentation.
Dr Pronovost is a practicing anesthesiologist and critical care physician who is dedicated to finding ways to make hospitals and healthcare safer for patients. Dr Pronovost is the director of the new Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins, as well as Johns Hopkins Medicine’s senior vice president for patient safety and quality, in the United States of America.
Dr Pronovost has developed a scientifically proven method for reducing the deadly infections associated with central line catheters. His simple but effective checklist protocol virtually eliminated these infections across the state of Michigan, saving 1,500 lives and $100 million annually.
Dr Pronovost has chronicled his work to improve patient safety in his book, Safe Patients, Smart Hospitals: How One Doctor’s Checklist Can Help Us Change Health Care from the Inside Out.
This session is free and open to public and private health service clinicians and executives, quality and safety leaders and departmental representatives.
