Use of System Integration Simulations in Quality and Patient Safety (1090-003962)
CE Hours: 1.00 Session Type: Prerecorded Educational Courses Session Sub Type: Hands-on Workshop (60 minutes)
Learning Objective 1:
Identify processes or procedures that are amenable to evaluation through the use of simulation
Learning Objective 2:
Discuss how simulation can be used as an exploratory tool during the review or prevention of sentinel events
Learning Objective 3:
Describe the similarities and differences between a root cause analysis and a health failures mode effects analysis

This course is a general overview of the topic.
Healthcare is a complex, interconnected system with numerous points of intersection between staff, patients, departments, and service lines across the facility. Simulation as a systems tool can plan a key role in the investigation and mitigation of medical errors in a root cause analysis and prospectively in a healthcare failure modes effect analysis.
