Pre-Telluride Post

Hi Everyone – My name is Fern and I am very excited to meet you all this coming Sunday in Breckenridge. I chose to attend the Telluride experience because I have seen the current culture at my institution around medical errors and I would like to share these experiences with my conference colleagues with the aim to advance a just culture. I would also like to get feedback on what workflows or institutional practices have made medical error disclosure easier, more apparent, etc. I am also wondering about what programs other institutions have in place to support staff that have been involved in medical errors. I believe that all staff work toward a shared goal of improving the patient’s health in alignment with the patient’s goals. Not surprisingly, patient safety is important to me because every patient deserves a high quality of care no matter the societal circumstances.
