STEPS Forward webinar series

In the dynamic and stressful environment of health care, leadership training hasn’t always incorporated rapid technology advancement and how to lead teams through those changes.

Understanding the lag of human cognitive adaptation behind technological advances can be key in mitigating risk associated with medical error. Understanding basic human factors can help leaders and clinical teams connect and advance patient safety together.  

This interactive AMA STEPS Forward™  webinar, participants will hear about a framework to build on traditional safety models, integrated with consideration for human factors affecting outcomes in patient safety as well as the well-being of those taking care of the patients.
