Breakfast Briefing: Thursday, March 12; 7:15 - 8:15 a.m. ET
Topic: Protect the Safety and Well-Being of Your Staff and Patients
Description: Join Vocera CEO Brent Lang as he leads a panel discussion with CNO Rhonda Collins, DNP, RN, FAAN; and CNIO Bent Kanter, MD. These clinical executives will discuss some of the most pressing issues facing care teams today, including workplace violence, cognitive overload, and patient safety. Every day, clinicians make mistakes due to cognitive overload caused by overwhelming volumes of information from multiple people, devices, and systems. And while trying to manage incessant alerts, alarms, calls, requests, and tasks, healthcare workers are four times more likely to experience workplace violence than workers at other places of employment. We must take measures to safeguard nurses, physicians, and other care team members to ensure their safety and the safety of patients. Conversations like this are vital to humanizing healthcare and elevating discussions around workplace violence, cognitive overload, and other issues that put the well-being of patients, families, and care teams at risk.
