Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - FAER-Helrich Research Lecture: Harm Prevention in Critical Care: A Transprofessional Journey

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a high-risk environment, with patients susceptible to multiple hospital acquired conditions or harms. In the past several years, progress has been made in reducing individual harms such as catheter-associated bloodstream infection (CABSI) and ventilator-associated harms (VAH) by focusing intently on the individual harm. Rather than relying on new technologies, these harm reductions have come from improved processes of care and teamwork. At the same time, we have come to recognize harm to patients in the form of failure to treat patients with respect and dignity, and failure to align the wishes of patients and families with providers. This presentation will discuss the above harms, along with an innovative approach to simultaneously prevent multiple harms in ICU patients, utilizing a trans-professional approach, new technology and engaging patients and families in their own care.

These patient safety activities help fulfill the patient safety CME requirement for Part 2 of the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program® (MOCA) of The American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA). Please consult the ABA website, www.theABA.org, for a list of all MOCA requirements.
