NCQC PSO Members Only: Safe Table: Managing Diabetic Patients Who Use Concentrated Insulin, November 15, 2017
- Wednesday, November 15, 2017
- Novant Forsyth Medical Center-Conference Center — Winston-Salem, NC
THIS MEETING IS LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF THE NCQC PSO ONLY
With so many concentrated insulin products available, it is critical that healthcare providers, diabetic educators and pharmacists develop reliable medication processes within and between healthcare settings to ensure effective insulin management. Correct conversion of concentrated insulins upon admission and discharge in conjunction with the hospital formulary can become a risk point for hypoglycemia as seen in our patient safety platform events. Come join us and share your events so all of us can learn how to identify and mitigate risk with concentrated insulins.
A Safe Table provides a forum for NCQC PSO members to network and exchange patient safety experiences and best practices in an open, uninhibited and legally protected environment. Most importantly, it helps build a strong and supportive patient safety community where collective learning is valued and collegial relationships are supported and encouraged.
Safe Tables are legally protected under the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 that allow health care providers to convene and have open dialogue about patient safety and quality of care issues. All attendees are required to sign confidentiality agreements and all information shared will remain confidential and privileged.
Attendees should bring 1 or 2 de-identified events that occurred in their organization to share in an open discussion. Remove any patient or provider identifiable information. The Safe Table discussions take place within the NCQC Patient Safety Evaluation System to encourage open and robust dialogue about these events and what can be done to prevent them without fear of discovery. Also bring your prescribing protocols for discussion!
