Webinar: ECRI Institute Top 10 Safety Concerns for 2018

May 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Each year, the ECRI Institute creates an annual list of Top 10 patient safety concerns to support healthcare organizations in their efforts to proactively identify threats to patient safety and work on improving patient safety by addressing the identified concerns. The organization provides the list, perspectives from experts, and advice on best practices to address these issues.

The list is synthesized from varied sources:

  • Routine review of events in the ECRI Institute PSO database
  • PSO members’ root-cause analyses and research requests
  • A survey of Healthcare Risk Control (HRC) members regarding their top patient safety concerns
  • Topics reflected in weekly HRC Alerts
  • Voting by a panel of experts from inside and outside ECRI Institute

Most organizations already know what their high-frequency, high-severity challenges are. Rather, this list identifies concerns that might be high priorities for other reasons, such as new risks, existing concerns that are changing because of new technology or care delivery models, and persistent issues that need focused attention or pose new opportunities for intervention.

Participants in this webinar will:

  • Describe how to use the Top 10 List to conduct patient safety discussions and information gathering and setting priorities
  • Describe how one organization determined if they face similar issues that should be targeted for improvement
  • Receive information to develop strategies to address concerns
