Coming soon – the Center's Next PPLT Module!

May 18, 2011    |   By: Calevir

Friday, June 10th is the last day to register for the informational “kick-off” call for the Center’s Second PPLT Module: CUSP Communication & Teamwork Tools!
We are excited to offer an audio version of our recent informational call to kick off CUSP Communication & Teamwork Tools! [And be on the lookout for consistent audio posts in the future]

The deadline to register for CUSP Communication and Teamwork Tools is Friday, June 10th.

Presented by, Kimberly O’Brien, Project Manager with MOCPS, and Pat Posa, System Performance improvement Leader at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan, this first call is engaging and provides everything you need to participate in this second module of the People, Priorities and Learning Together (PPLT).

We’ve been quite fortunate to have Pat as an instructing faculty member for the Center’s CUSP-focused modules The Basics of CUSP and now the upcoming CUSP Communication & Teamwork Tools.

Included with the call is a PowerPoint presentation and commitment form for participation in this module.   Of course, this module is a part of our overarching PPLT initiative, which integrates the Center’s safety improvement work we are doing with health care providers across the state of Missouri.   One of the most important aspects about PPLT is that it does not reinvent wheels, but uses existing proven programs such as Just Culture, Team Stepps, CUSP/Stop BSI, Crucial Conversations – and brings these tools to the hospital units and their patients…and gets them fully implemented at the bedside.

As always, contact us with any questions you may have!

Listen now to the CUSP Communication & Teamwork Tools information call!
