The Mississippi Hospital Association, in partnership with LifeWings, will conduct a statewide TeamSTEPPS Collaborative. Increasing complexity and reimbursement changes in healthcare creates a critical need for more reliable and efficient systems to provide the safest, most cost-effective care for our patients. By participating in this Collaborative you will learn how to create a culture of accountability and safety that will improve core measures, eliminate patient harm, reduce hospital acquired conditions, lower nursing and staff turnover, and eliminate reimbursement penalties. The comprehensive curriculum will provide the skills and coaching you need to implement a proven system of change to make every safety and quality initiative in your organization successful.
LifeWings has combined the best practices of safety systems used by high reliability organizations such as commercial airlines and nuclear power plants with the AHRQ TeamSTEPPS program. The Collaborative will show you how to implement this proven system in your hospital. The Collaborative curriculum includes 9 webinars and 3 convenient live-multi-day workshops over 6 months. LifeWings’ experienced coaches will lead you through a step-by-step implementation blueprint to ensure your success. There are over 60 hours of instruction and coaching. Collaborative participants then received 6 more months of consultive coaching to help you through the rough spots of implementation.
