Missed Care - Preventing Errors of Omission Conference!
Need for Program
When standard required care is not provided this can be called missed care. “Missed care” has been reported as a common phenomenon responsible for poor health outcomes. Errors related to omission of care can occur in any health setting and with any health provider. Evidence shows the reasons for missed care are similar across health care settings. The impact missed care has on patient care outcomes has developed a need for more understanding of the phenomena. This includes knowing the common reasons for care to be missed, and how these problems can be avoided. Providing education and a forum for discussion about this topic will enable nurses and other health care practitioners to examine their own practices and those of their organisation and consider what can be done to close the gap between required care and actual care.
Purpose of Program
The purpose of this conference is to consider the implications of missed care to patient outcomes and identify practical nursing strategies to prevent errors of omission.
Your learning outcomes:
Analyse predictors and causes of missed care in your own practice/workplace
Prioritise and effectively delegate workload and create systems that routinely include follow up
Communicate the impact of missed care to all stakeholders within your immediate workplace and open discussion on ways to prevent errors of omission
Encourage colleagues to discuss the impact that errors of omission have had on their sense of professional integrity in regard to the provision of holistic care
