NPSB Full Court Press Meeting Serves Up the Latest Up Next for Patient Safety Podcast Episode
The National Patient Safety Board (NPSB) Full Court Press meeting held on October 10 provided more than a forum for sharing updates on the effort to establish an NPSB: it also served as the setting for capturing the latest episode of the Up Next for Patient Safety podcast.
The NPSB has been designed to complement existing patient safety programs, many of which exist across the healthcare landscape. Many organizations have a hand in some aspect of patient safety, but no entity has full responsibility for ensuring safety in health care. During the Full Court Press meeting, Jewish Healthcare Foundation President and CEO Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, had the opportunity to bring together a stellar panel of experts in safety from both within and outside of health care to explore avenues for uniting the efforts of existing organizations to finally make meaningful progress on patient safety. Joining Dr. Feinstein for this discussion were healthcare safety watchdog Leah Binder, MA, MGA; pilot and former National Transportation Safety Board chair Christopher A. Hart, JD, MSE; professor of engineering and risk reduction expert Najmedin Meshkati, PhD, MS; and esteemed healthcare leader Julie Morath, RN, MS. The group provided insights for how collaborative approaches have led to vastly improved safety in other industries and the potential for similar gains in health care.
