Summary: MentorHealth, a leading provider of online training for the healthcare industry, is organizing a webinar on October 3 on the topic, “Quality Assurance in Nursing”. It will be presented by Dev Raheja, faculty at Florida Tech University.
This webinar looks at ways by which the general quality of healthcare can be improved.
Lack of quality healthcare can be very dangerous for the healthcare provider as well as the patient. Quality been varyingly described as doing work without errors; doing it on time, eliminating waste, doing something to the customer’s satisfaction, and being compliant with set regulations.

Quality is actually is a combination of all these. In the healthcare setting, quality brings an added dimension: Value offered to the patient in terms of curing the disease and being compassionate. It requires the use of emotional intelligence to protect the patient from harm and other negatives.

Shoddy quality in providing healthcare is said to lead to harm to no fewer than 1.5 million patients annually in the US. Because of this, lawsuits have been rising. These in turn have been giving way to expensive litigations and costly rewards, leading to high costs for the hospitals. It is when these are eliminated that healthcare can be said to be truly effective and result-oriented.

In bringing about these outcomes, hospitals need to be up to the mark in consistently meeting demanding and exacting standards that are prescribed by regulatory and accrediting authorities. Attendees of this webinar will understand what structure, process, and outcome requirements need to be kept in mind in keeping pace with the changes. It familiarizes participants with the methods that can be used to measure quality.

It covers the following areas:
o Quality assurance process
o System Model
o ANA Quality Assurance Model
o Factors affecting quality assurance in nursing care
o Controlling situations instead of situations controlling you
o Internal audit as a tool for quality assurance

When: October 3, 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT
