Patient Safety Officer (PSO) Engagement Roundtable COVID-19 Pre-Procedure Testing
Date/Time:
September 23, 2020 - 12 to 1 p.m.
Duration:
1 hour
Location:
Online Event via Microsoft Teams

Description:

As we all adjust to a new way of conducting business and with your safety in mind, the Patient Safety Authority would like to take the opportunity to launch a new series of virtual events to facilitate engagement between PA healthcare facilities.

Instead of regional in-person events, the Engagement Roundtable series will be conducted virtually, with participation open statewide via Microsoft Teams. The Patient Safety Authority believes that in the age of social distancing, finding ways to stay connected with other patient safety professionals is more important than ever. The primary goal of these events is to facilitate the sharing and discussion of information in a collaborative environment for a range of patient safety topics.

This roundtable event is intended to give acute care facilities an opportunity to discuss the current COVID-19 pandemic with each other, and how they are screening patients undergoing elective and non-elective procedures.

After you register you will receive a confirmation email that includes the link to join the meeting via Microsoft Teams.

In addition to the confirmation email, the instructions on how to join will also be included in the course materials email that is sent out prior to the registered event.
