CPSI: Reimagining healing after healthcare harm

As patients and families impacted by harm, we imagine progressive approaches in responding to patient safety incidents – focused on restoring health and repairing trust.

We can change how we respond to healthcare harm by shifting the focus away from what happened, towards who has been affected and in what way. This is your opportunity to hear about innovative approaches in Canada, New Zealand, and the United States that appreciate these human impacts.

This interactive webinar is hosted by Patients for Patient Safety Canada, the patient-led program of the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) and the Canadian arm of the World Health Organization Patients for Patient Safety Global Network.

The Tipping Point of Virtual Care and Rise of Personal Health Data


This webinar will explore virtual care and the use of patient health data through remote patient monitoring. 
In the UK and US alike, COVID-19 has accelerated the dramatic shift towards utilising digital health services and tools to virtually connect with and care for patients. 
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) offers providers the opportunity to remotely collect and utilise patients’ personal health data, such as data from their home-use medical devices and wearables, within care delivery efforts. These personal health data are providing deeper insight into patients’ physiologic health metrics, lifestyle decisions and behavioural trends while replacing the clinical data previously collected in-person. 
As health care organisations need to quickly scale virtual care to thousands of patients, clear best practices and lessons learned have emerged. 
This episode will deep-dive into the successful operations of the largest, centralised RPM programme, supporting over 3000 clinicians and more than 50,000 enrolled patients. We’ll delve into the most basic and complex challenges around patient-generated health data, patient consent, enrollment workflows, device logistics, patient and provider engagement, and more. 
This webinar will explore:
Core operations and technologies to a holistic virtual care strategy  The clinical outcomes, patient and provider satisfaction, and efficiencies created with RPM Best practices in digital health operations, data integration, analytics, and engagement A model and framework for scaling virtual care and RPM to thousands of patients quickly  A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.

Webinars: Helping surgeons when things go wrong

Surgeons are affected by adverse events. There is a paucity of data on the impact of adverse events on UK surgeons, on the factors that affect the degree and nature of this impact, and on the interventions that might ameliorate this impact either before or after an adverse event. This presentation will include early results of a UK survey and details of an RCT to evaluate the effectiveness of resilience training for surgical trainees.

Online course: Risk management

This masterclass, facilitated by Faisal Ahmed, Governance Specialist Trainer, provides knowledge and skills in addressing and managing risks within a health Organisation. All staff who report and manage risks should attend.
Risks are inherent in all organisations – implementing and managing control measures is pivotal to managing risk in order to prevent an incident taking place. By exploring drivers behind why risks happen we can understand how to mitigate and reduce the likelihood and severity of further risks and the occurrence of incidents.  
A risk can be viewed as a precursor to an incident. Prevention through the risk management process can be an effective mechanism for organisations to manage their risks. All staff have a duty to identify and escalate risk within an organisation. This masterclass will explore the key components of the risk management process that must be followed to reduce the likelihood and severity of the risk.

Webinar: What does the pandemic mean for the nation’s health and health inequalities?


The Health Foundation is exploring the pandemic’s implications for health and health inequalities. In this webinar, we share our learning so far, focusing on groups of people who have been particularly affected including young people and Black and minority ethnic groups.

We’ll explore what the economic impact of the pandemic means for the wider determinants of health. And, as we move towards post-COVID-19 recovery, we’ll look at what's needed to address health inequalities and to create the conditions for everyone to live a healthy life.

Webinar: Embedding the Professional Duty of Candour

This seminar will introduce recent research on the professional duty of candour and reflect on the relationship between candour and patient safety.  In particular, it will focus on factors which can encourage or discourage candour in the workplace and how these are reflected in the surgical setting.
