Silence Kills: The Seven Crucial Conversations for Health Care Workshop
Tuesday, June 5, 2012 (Morning)
Effective communication and teamwork strategies, such as checklists and team briefings, have demonstrated success within the health care system to enhance the safe delivery of care. While significant improvements have been made to enhance communication and safety through these and other tools, new research reveals that there is still more work to do.
The Study, Silence Kills: The Seven Crucial Conversations for Healthcare, conducted by VitalSmarts in conjunction with the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, links people’s ability to discuss emotionally and politically risky topics in a health care setting with key results such as: patient safety, quality of care, and nursing turnover.
In this engaging presentation, you’ll learn to speak up skillfully and respectfully when it matters most. In health care, this practice may contribute to a reduction in medical errors, and improved patient satisfaction, while ultimately saving lives.
This Silence Kills workshop reviews seven categories of conversation that are essential for people in health care to master:
• Broken rules
• Lack of support
• Poor teamwork
