Patient Safety Camp Update

The Telluride East Patient Safety Roundtable and Summer Camp I recently attended was a great learning experience. I was moved by stories of patients who were unnecessarily harmed in the course of their medical care, and I met patient safety leaders from around the world and learned about their innovative patient safety efforts. I was particularly impressed by “Between the Flags”, a program created by Dr. Cliff Hughes, an eminent cardiothoracic surgeon and CEO of the Clinical Excellence Commission in New South Wales, Australia. I plan to investigate this program further and determine if aspects of it can be used in the patient safety efforts at MGUH.
