Diagnostic errors are very common. Learning about tools for diagnostic excellence including TeamSTEPPS model will be useful. Communication and reflective practice should be incorporated in our daily practice. Doing the team activity is a good test for collaboration toward common goal.
We all know that medical error happens but it is very important to handle those in the right way as health care providers and health care team. Watching the movie bleed out made me realize how medical errors can be catastrophic for not only the patient but to their family members.
Hearing the Gentry story was breathtaking. It sad to hear about the catastrophic event but how the surgical team and the hospital handle the situation is good. Getting to know about Candor/ GO Team strategy will be useful for me in the future.
In addition, we often forgot the burden on caregiver. The session by Ed Tori is inspiring for all of us to work more toward improving our wellness and use stress assessment and management strategy. This will reduce burn out and decrease medical errors.
I had a lot of learning yesterday from reflective practice to transparency. Watching Lewis Blackman story was difficult but made realize how system with multiple layers could fail and how many of these stories happen each year. It is great to connect with group of like-minded people and works together toward a common goal of improving patient safety.
