Prepare for the new Patient Safety Systems chapter and redesigned Sentinel Events chapter with the practical advice and guidance presented in “The Joint Commission’s New Patient Safety Chapter: How to Comply and Promote a Culture of Safety.” This 90-minute webcast is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. Eastern.

Expert speaker Sena Blickenstaff, BSN, MBA, will explain how The Joint Commission's renewed focus on patient safety and quality will affect hospitals. The chapters went into effect on January 1, 2015, and surveyors will expect hospital leadership and staff to be able to explain how their facility is committed to patient safety and quality improvement. Blickenstaff, the author of HCPro's forthcoming book on the new Patient Safety chapter, will break down everything you need to know to be prepared.
