|10:30am||CONCURRENT : BE IN THE KNOW : HOW SAFETY HUDDLES HAVE EVOLVED TO IMPROVE COMMUNICATION IN THE PERIOPERATIVE SETTING|
Québec | Room 301AB | 60 minutes
In 2017, the Adult Surgery Program at the IWK Health center began formal safety huddles after conducting a comprehensive initiative to help improve efficiency (LEAN). Part of the LEAN work included having an opportunity for staff to bring forward work improvement initiatives and safety concerns at a safety huddle. After 6 years, and a few changes, the safety huddle remains an important tool used in communicating with perioperative staff. This presentation will outline the successes and challenges encountered with safety huddles in the Adult Surgery Program.
