CMS NCD Pacing Event | Tools for Identifying and Reducing VAEs

Webinar: May 5, 2016 2:00pm - 3:00pm (CST)
This Pacing Event will focus on tools for identifying and reducing the rate of ventilator-associated events (VAEs). The session will feature two different resources that have helped hospitals achieve success in reducing VAEs, as well as reducing other harms, such as sepsis and delirium. First, Emily Pasola, MSN, RN, from Saint Joseph’s Mercy Health System in Michigan will describe the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) for Mechanically Ventilated Patients-Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (CUSP 4 MVP-VAP) toolkit and discuss the application of its interventions. A hospital that has reduced VAEs using the CUSP 4 MVP-VAP toolkit will share its efforts and outcomes.
 
The event will also include a presentation on the Centers for Disease Control and Infection’s (CDC) NHSN VAE Calculator, which is designed to help hospitals identify and reduce VAEs. Wanda Lledo from San Lucas Hospital in Puerto Rico will provide an overview of the calculator and describe how it has helped the hospital with addressing VAEs, as well as outcomes related to sepsis, sedation management, and mortality.
 
The session will also feature a patient perspective on the importance of addressing VAEs.
 
The session will be chaired by Kendall Hall, MD (NCD). Please bring your questions, comments, and experiences to share.

AHA/HRET HEN 2.0 | Rural/CAH Affinity Group: Achieving Success Against All Odds

Webinar: May 9, 2016 11:00am - 12:30pm (CST)

 

Hospitals are being asked to improve quality, safety and efficiency faster than ever. The expanded work in HEN 2.0 has created unique challenges for small, rural and critical access hospitals as we ask for more data and more improvement on more topics. Hospitals that have approached the improvement challenge with fresh, innovative ideas are finding new ways to get the work done while restoring pride and joy in the workplace. In this Critical Access and Rural Hospital Affinity Group webinar, the innovation engine will be explored. We will discuss drivers of innovation in health care and will share specific creativity-evoking strategies that can shift the culture from one of scarcity to one of abundance. Stories from the field will highlight how individual critical access and small rural hospitals have overcome the “burden” by building creative approaches to improving safety and quality.

AHA/HRET HEN 2.0 WAKE UP Webinar

Webinar: May 12, 2016 11:00am - 12:00pm (CST)

 

Join us May 12 at 11 a.m. CT as we explore our first in a three-part series on crosscutting interventions. This first installment introduces the “UP” campaign and the role of crosscutting interventions in reducing multiple hospital-acquired conditions (HACs): shifting focus from many interventions to a few with far-reaching impact.

Our first “UP” webinar is WAKE UP. This webinar will focus on over-sedation in all hospital departments, whether from opioids, benzodiazepines, hypnotics or IV ICU sedatives like dexmedetomidine. Hear from Heidi Engel, PT, DPT, from the ICU at the University of California, San Francisco, and member of the ICU Liberation Committee”, and from Paula Kobelt, MSN, RN-BC, from Ohio Health in Columbus. Learn why unnecessary sedation can cause broad harm to patients and tips and tricks to surmount traditional barriers to change the way clinicians think about sedation, moving it from clinician-centric to patient-centric. Learn how to effectively implement the Pasero Opioid-Induced Sedation Scale. And finally, hear from a peer hospital how it is shaking off tradition and moving toward modern sedation management.

Targeted audience:

The target audience includes Hospital leaders, Nursing leaders, Front-line nurses in the ICU, PACU, general medical-surgical beds and procedural areas, Physicians, Pharmacists, Physical and occupational therapists, Patient and family engagement leaders, and Quality improvement professionals
