Event: Achieving Better Outcomes with Interprofessional Collaboration
Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 5:30-7:30p.m.
ACHE-RI is excited to be kicking off its 2016 educational calendar. This year's sessions will be about "new ways of working." We're eager to bring you fresh ideas, new perspectives, and the latest research that you can apply to your day-to-day work.
A recent Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report profiles the experiences of more than 20 hospitals and community health centers, including Women & Infants Hospital, that utilize interprofessional collaboration to achieve better patient outcomes. The report, "Lessons From the Field: Promising Interprofessional Collaboration Practices," helps health care entities assess the potential benefits of interprofessional collaboration and offers a road map to implementing the approach.
Join us as report author and ACHE-RI President Jennifer Tomasik, SM, FACHE, reviews the research and leads a panel discussion among the Women & Infants Hospital team putting the tactics to use. Panelists will include:
-Raymond Powrie, MD, chief medical quality officer, Care New England Health System
-Angeleen Peters-Lewis, RN, PhD, senior vice president & chief nursing officer, Care New
-Matt Quin, RN, MSN, senior vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer,
Women & Infants Hospital
Jennifer Tomasik will also be presenting this topic at ACHE's 2016 Congress on Healthcare Leadership in Chicago. Now is your chance to learn about it here in Rhode Island!
