CPS Hosting Safe Table Discussions with PSO Participants

June 27, 2014    |   By: Calevir

This Summer, the Center for Patient Safety (CPS) is hosting regional meetings for healthcare providers that have a current PSO agreement with CPS.   It’s a rewarding afternoon that focuses on patient safety and promotes networking with peers through Safe Tables.

What is a “Safe Table”?   It’s a members-only shared learning meeting among healthcare providers to network and exchange patient safety experiences and best practices in an open, uninhibited and legally protected environment.   The venue allows participants to share de-identified adverse events with other hospitals, gain input and support and learn from their own mistakes as well as the mistakes of others.   Ultimately, the end result is safer care for patients in all the participants’ hospitals.

Registration information will be delivered directly to CPS PSO participants.

If you have questions or are interested in joining the Center’s PSO, please contact any member of our PSO team or call 888.935.8272.
