2018 Education Opportunities for Professionals Who Support Quality and Safety Initiatives in Oncology Settings

A Special Message for Professionals Who Support Quality and Safety Initiatives in Oncology Settings

 

Dear Colleague,

There are a number of challenges that impact quality and safety improvement efforts within oncology settings:

  • How we improve access to care for cancer patients
  • How we develop clinical pathways for specific cancer treatments
  • Howe we manage risk in the cancer care setting
  • How we strive to improve patient experience and efficiency of care
  • How we prevent medication errors
  • How we mitigate the emotional toll of medical errors
  • How we lead changes in our local practices
  • How we communicate medical errors to patients
  • How we standardize care across multidisciplinary teams
  • How we not only support, but help define, broader quality and safety initiatives
  • How we engage frontline staff in process improvement initiatives

The 2018 Healthcare Quality and Safety conference offers state-of-the-art approaches to these challenges.

We invite you to join us for this exciting and timely program and look forward to meeting you.
