On the second day of HPSN World 2019, we introduced our keynote panel of medical experts, educators and individuals directly involved in the making of the "To Err is Human" documentary.
Together, before a captivated audience, the panel engaged in a spirited exchange surrounding the personal and systemic impact of preventable medical harm. The knowledgeable group also shared well-considered ideas for solving the problem.
The patient safety panel was comprised of the following individuals:
Mike Eisenberg, the Director and Co-producer of To Err is Human
Sue Sheridan, Director of Patient Engagement, Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine
Dr. Tara Bastek, Neonatologist, Bioethicist and Chair of the WakeMed bioethics committee
Dr. West Paul, Chief Quality and Medical Officer at WakeMed Health
Special Opportunity: Host Your Own Screening of To Err Human with CAE
To help raise and maintain awareness of the need to improve patient safety globally, and to highlight the role that healthcare simulation-based training can play in achieving this objective, CAE is offering free special screenings of the documentary “To Err is Human” to healthcare audiences. The film is the creation of Mike Eisenberg, son of Dr. John Eisenberg who was director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) when the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released the “To Err is Human” research report in 1999.
Detailing one family’s initimate story of medical harm, the film features interviews with prominent patient safety advocates as they discuss solutions for reducing medical errors. To date, more than 200 healthcare organizations have hosted special screenings of the film, followed by passionate panel discussions.
