What our Participants say...

"We are working in the same area with different challenges and different context, but overall this webinar gives us proper direction. I most enjoyed the proverb shared by the presenter, more focus on improvement rather than blaming. Thanks for nice presentation, I really enjoyed."

Dr Mohammad Basir Farid
Quality Assurance Manager, Afghanistan


"I found this webinar very beneficial as I currently work on a quality project with 55 hospitals. I found learning about incidence reporting and also the importance of the second victim (the clinician) particularly interesting.

Dr. Hyelhirra Adamu
Analyst, Nigeria

About the Webinar

Regardless of our role in health care, we share a common goal of providing safe, effective, quality care. But despite our best intentions, this doesn’t always happen. Join Chris Power as she discusses the competing priorities facing leaders at all levels within organizations and how enabling cultures of safety must be a core competency of leaders. This webinar will highlight the following aspects;
• Learn how leaders can ensure that patient safety remains a top priority in an organization;
• Understand the cost of harm to all concerned;
• Learn the “downstream effects” of having a serious safety event at your organization.

Intended Audience

All health care professionals with a focus on leadership.
