Karen Feinstein Speaks on Patient Safety Panel at UPMC Shadyside M&M Conference

Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, served as a speaker at the Department of Medicine Morbidity and Mortality Conference at UPMC Shadyside on May 25.

The M&M Conference is a traditional, recurring conference held by medical services at academic medical centers providing an intense, detailed review of the care delivered to patients where patient safety issues have occurred.

Karen was asked to discuss the founding of PRHI, current patient safety initiatives, and her perspective on promising solutions. Other speakers defined patient safety and provided their viewpoint on how physicians, hospitals and the larger healthcare community approach safety. David J. Levenson, MD, served as convener.

Lisa Donahue, RN, director of Patient's Safety for UPMC Shadyside, presented safety issues at the hospital for specific discussion among participants, before the conversation focused on the larger healthcare community's view of key patient safety issues and a national perspective of health care, including the establishment of the National Patient Safety Board (NPSB).
