La Lebanese Society for Quality and Safety in Healthcare LSQSH a le plaisir et l’honneur de vous inviter à vous inscrire au webinaire présenté par le Pr Anthony Staines, Chargé du programme "Sécurité des patients" à la Fédération des hôpitaux vaudois en Suisse et rédacteur en chef adjoint à l’International Journal for Quality in Healthcare.

Titre: Comment promouvoir la « Just Culture » pour apprendre à partir des erreurs et incidents?
Résumé: Un patient sur dix subit un événement indésirable au cours du processus de soins. Ce chiffre semble stagner. Les incidents sont sous-déclarés, empêchant l’apprentissage organisationnel qui devrait avoir lieu. Il est fondamental que nous développions une culture juste à l’égard de ceux qui commettent des erreurs, encourageant l’apprentissage et évitant des sanctions. Comment promouvoir cette culture ? qu’est-ce qu’une culture « juste » ? Ce webinaire proposera une réflexion et des outils sur ce thème.
Heure: 24 sept. 2021 06:30 PM Beyrouth Les places sont limitées. Pour vous inscrire, envoyez un courriel à This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
