Track 3:
 Patient Safety

About the Webinar

There is now widespread acceptance and awareness of the problem of medical harm, and considerable efforts have been made to improve the safety of healthcare. But do we know how much of harm do we currently measure? Do we know what to measure? The need for good methods for the measurement of harm is necessary whenever an inference is intended and, since inferences lie at the heart of safety management, there is a huge need to understand better how to make measurements that are meaningful, precise, and accurate.

Learning Objectives
By the end of this webinar, participants will:

- be able to recognize the wide scope of harm measurement
- have basic principles in metric performance
- be able to know how to choose the most appropriate approach/tool/method

Intended Audience
This webinar is intended for any healthcare professional who is leading a patient safety program at meso or macro level (healthcare setting, ward).
