Patient Safety Officer (PSO) Basics: Patient Safety Essentials in Pennsylvania: Module IV: Reporting Specific Types of Events
June 13, 2024 - 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
1.50 hours

Are you a new patient safety officer (PSO)? Or maybe you just want to brush up on Pennsylvania event reporting requirements?

After completing this series, broken into four easy-to-digest modules, you’ll understand your responsibilities as a PSO, how to apply reporting guidelines to various scenarios, and the key elements of the Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error (MCARE) Act (i.e., Act 13) and why it was enacted.

1.0 continuing education hours will be awarded for the completion of each individual module listed above. Continuing education credits apply to Pennsylvania registered nurses only.

Please note that this course is a repeat of the educational programs that we offered in 2021, 2022 and 2023, and is being offered again as 90-minute sessions for those patient safety professionals who were unable to attend all the modules.

*While you are still welcome to attend, please come aware that the information being presented in these sessions is specific to Pennsylvania acute care facilities. If you are not both a Pennsylvania facility and an acute care facility this information will not be applicable to you.
