Seventh Annual Telluride Patient Safety Educational Roundtable
June 13th – June 16th, 2011
Over the last six years, interprofessional leaders from the AMA, ANA, Joint Commission, NBME, ACGME, Lucian Leape Institute, patient safety, informatics, simulation and health science education have come together with patients and patient advocates in beautiful Telluride, Colorado to address current patient safety educational issues.
Through the generous support of The Doctors Company Foundation, we will be bringing twenty medical student leaders from across the country to Telluride this year to engage with leaders and educators in patient safety for our Seventh Annual Telluride Patient Safety Educational Roundtable addressing “Dilemmas Surrounding Medical Errors and Adverse Events: Teaching Caregivers Effective Communication Skills to Overcome the Multiple Barriers to Transparency”. Our Roundtable this year focuses on issues and barriers related to open, honest and professional communication between caregivers when unanticipated adverse events occur.
Telluride Patient Safety Roundtable Vision:
To create an annual one-week retreat and medical student summer camp where experts in patient safety and health science education come together with patients and consumers in a relaxed and informal setting to discuss, develop and refine health science education that supports a culture of patient safety, transparency and optimal outcomes in patient care.
Program Leaders: David Mayer MD, Tim McDonald MD JD, Rick Boothman JD
Telluride Student Summer Camp Objectives:
- Development of future medical student champions in patient safety, risk reduction and open, honest and professional communication between patients, families and caregivers.
- Development of student camp alumni that serve as mentors to students enrolled in future patient safety student camps.
- Collaborative medical student/faculty/patient advocate patient safety projects.
