Ok not actually rocks, but it is one of the coolest ways to keep up with the medical literature. The Author in the Room series allows you access to the principals in some current and important clinical trials. Don Berwick's commentaries make me want to be a better doctor(only a little tongue in cheek actually); he always has an important and timely topic for the future of medicine.

     Shannon Welch, MPH, Project Director, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)

A significant rise in maternal deaths in the United States, especially among black women, has recently gotten a lot of public attention. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), acute events tied to childbirth are contributing to the upward trend. Experts also highlight other factors putting black women, in particular, at risk: racism and implicit bias within health care, the daily struggles of poverty, and disregard for pregnant women’s knowledge about their own bodies and potentially dangerous symptoms.

 With lives at stake, we invite you to listen to this WIHI: Black Women and Maternal Care: Redesigning for Safety, Dignity, and Respect to learn more about the issues that have led to an alarming rise in maternal mortality disproportionately impacting Black women and what can be done to reverse this trend. Dr. Joia Crear-Perry, Ebony Marcelle, and Kiddada Green are among national and local leaders of organizations that are co-creating solutions and interventions with Black women all across the US to improve the quality of support and health care surrounding pregnancy and childbirth. Shannon Welch will describe how the current partnerships and learning with IHI promise to offer new and better practices to improve outcomes and save lives.

May 30, 2019

Featuring:

    John Krueger, MD, MPH, Division Vice President for Quality, CHI Franciscan
    Joan Maxwell, Patient Advisor, John Muir Health
    Scott K. Winiecki, MD, Director, Safe Use Initiative, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

The key components of safer acute pain management systems, along with tools and resources to support new practices, are highlighted in a new IHI report, Advancing the Safety of Acute Pain Management​. In this episode of WIHI, we dive into the report with three experts: John Krueger, Joan Maxwell, and Scott Winiecki. John and Joan discuss establishing shared expectations with their video simulation of a doctor and patient discussing her upcoming surgery,​ and Scott shines light on the work being done by the Safe Use Initiative at the FDA.

Our WIHI guests all agree that health care needs to create safer processes for a patient population that is becoming more aware of the risks of opioids, more realistic about their ability to tolerate some pain, and more open to non-opioid remedies for pain management. If you’re looking to learn more about how to create these processes, then this WIHI is for you.

Rank #5: WIHI: What’s an Apology Worth? The Case for Communication and Resolution

Podcast cover
Read more

Date: April 18, 2019

 Featuring:

Thomas H. Gallagher, MD, Professor, Department of Medicine, University of Washington; Associate Chair, Patient Care Quality, Safety, and Value

Allen Kachalia, MD, JD, Director, Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality; Senior Vice President for Patient Safety and Quality, Johns Hopkins Medicine

Description:

When a patient is unintentionally harmed during medical treatment, how should organizations respond?

 Not that long ago, steps like these were unthinkable and, from a risk manager's perspective, totally unwise. Today these practices are at the core of what are called communication and resolution programs (or CRPs)​, and their architects say there's been a significant uptick in US health systems using them. Our guests are two leading experts on CRPs, Tom Gallagher and Allen Kachalia. They and a team of researchers have been teasing out the reasons why so many health care leaders are committed to the principles of CRPs, but hesitant to deploy the practices.

 If you've been wondering what's been going on with CRPs and new ways forward, this WIHI is for you.

Rank #6: WIHI: How to Make Patient Safety Easier to Explain and to Champion

Podcast cover
Read more

Date: March 21, 2019

Featuring:

    M.E. Malone, MS, MPH, Deputy Director, Betsy Lehman Center for Patient Safety
    Rose Hendricks, PhD, Researcher, FrameWorks Institute 
    William Berry, MD, MPA, MPH, Associate Director and Senior Advisor to Executive Director, Ariadne Labs​

Certain concepts have become hallmarks of improving patient safety and second nature to improvers — for example, systems thinking and building a culture of safety. However, try explaining this work to people outside safety improvement circles and you're likely to confront the reality that the degree to which health care can be unsafe and that medical errors and near misses occur is not universally shared. Or understood.

The Betsy Lehman Center has been working on a multi-phase effort to better understand these disconnects and the messaging and terminology that might fix them. They've published a new report​, and we dug into the findings and recommendations on the March 21 WIHI: How to Make Patient Safety Easier to Explain and to Champion.

How much thought and preparation go into how you pitch new ideas and initiatives to leaders in your organization? If you've been frustrated by lack of support or buy-in from a leader, it's possible that you did not win that person over at the start.

Rank #8: WIHI: New Guidance for Governance of Health System Quality - What Trustees Should Know and Do

Podcast cover
Read more
    Beth Daley Ullem, MBA, President, Quality and Safety First
    Tejal K. Gandhi, MD, MPH, CPPS, Chief Clinical and Safety Officer, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI)
    Ruth A. Mickelsen, JD, MPH, Senior Lecturer, University of Minnesota School of Public Health; Chair, HealthPartners Board of Directors​​​​

 How well do health care boards oversee health care quality? Trustee oversight of finances has a long track record, while accountability for health care quality is relatively new and features a steep learning curve. There are hundreds of quality metrics to understand along with dozens of initiatives to improve care. Indeed, board members often complain that they're handed so much information, it's hard to ask hard questions, let alone engage in oversight.

 Is there a better way for boards to fulfill their mandate of ensuring health systems live up to theirs on quality? Maybe so. The IHI Lucian Leape Institute​ has just released a white paper, that pairs a new online assessment tool with a new framework, to help boards and health care leaders work together to take a giant step forward with governance of quality. We explored those details and more on the January 17 WIHI: NEW Guidance for Governance of Health System Quality – What Trustees Should Know and Do.

Rank #10: WIHI: BUILDING THE WILL AND SKILL TO BE A CLINICAL IMPROVER

Podcast cover
Read more

November 8, 2018

 Featuring:

    ​Brent C. James, MD, MStat, Clinical Professor (Affiliated), Department of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine; Senior Fellow, IHI; Former Chief Quality Officer, Intermountain Healthcare
    Kedar Mate, MD, Chief Innovation and Education Officer, Institute for Healthcare Improvement
    Kavita P. Bhavan, MD, MHS, Associate Professor Infectious Diseases, UT Southwestern; Medical Director, Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy Clinic, Parkland Health & Hospital System

 Clinical and administrative leaders in health care know how difficult it is to shape one, unifying workplace culture. And while interdisciplinary team-based care is becoming more common in health systems, the range of people taking care of patients perform their jobs based on very different professional backgrounds and training.

 Can quality improvement (QI) break down these silos? Can it nurture a new kind of culture, where QI is the knowledge that unites clinicians in the common pursuit of better clinical decision making and encourages more clinicians to take the lead with improving care delivery? There’s evidence to suggest yes.

 Whether the issue is curbing overdiagnosis and overtreatment; reducing waste, costs, and patient suffering; or factoring in “what matters” to a patient when considering treatment options, clinicians who are improvers can lead the way. We explored this topic and more on the November 8 WIHI: Building the Will and Skill to Be a Clinical Improver.
