MHA Keystone: Safe Care Workshop
Registration is now open for the MHA Keystone: Safe Care workshop, being held Sept. 17 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, East Lansing. Hospitals participating in any of the MHA Keystone: Safe Care initiatives — falls, pressure ulcers, venous thromboembolism (VTE) and adverse drug events (ADEs) — or the MHA Keystone HEN are strongly encouraged to attend. Multiple presentations will occur simultaneously and will include training on the use of Failure Mode & Effects Analysis, root-cause analysis and examine best practices for reducing harm due to patient falls and immobility, hospital-acquired pressure ulcers, opioids, ADEs and VTEs. Hospital teams will also hear from experts on engaging patients and their families in quality improvement work and high reliability concepts.

To register, visit the MHA Event Registration page or complete the registration form and return via email to Tammy Nault or fax to (517) 703-0605. Registration will close Sept. 3 and all registrations received after this deadline will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
