PIPSQC is pleased to announce our PIPSQC Minicourse (M23), "Protecting Children from Harm" will be taking place December 9th at the IHI 25th Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care (December 8-11, 2013 - Orlando, FL).
Pediatric patient safety, a developing field in health care, presents different challenges from those found in adult-focused settings. Fortunately, there is a growing knowledge base on which to base interventions. Understanding the barriers to the provision of safe care for children is key. In this session, leaders from the Paediatric International Patient Safety and Quality Community (PIPSQC) will present the latest theories on safety in child services, from the community to the hospital, focusing on child- and family-centered care.
After this session, participants will be able to:
-Identify the risks facing children in health care
-Develop a framework for pediatric patient safety and access tools that can be used in safety programs
-Utilize novel ways to protect children, led by parents and caregivers
Our lineup of expert speakers includes:
- Lachman, P., MD, Associate Medical Director and Consultant in Service Redesign and Transformation, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust
- Micalizzi, D., Pediatric Patient Safety Advocate, Advisor, and Educator, The Task Force for Child Survival and Development
- Scanlon, M., MD, Knowledge and Solutions Architect, Medical College of Wisconsin
