OTN Webcast Link: http://webcast.otn.ca/mywebcast?id=58696265


From January through March 2015, eight hospital departments across Toronto came together to implement Patient-Oriented Discharge Summaries (PODS), a tool developed through a codesign process involving patients, caregivers and providers. This presentation presents data on how the hospitals came together and the impact of PODs. Two early adopter hospitals (St. Michael’s Hospital / Hospital for Sick Children) will present their experience as well as the impact of implementing PODs within their environments.

Invited Speaker Rounds: Thursday, May 19th @ 12-1PM

Speaker: Dr. Noah Ivers
Title: The science and practice of Audit and Feedback: data-driven quality improvement
Description: All too frequently, when quality improvement interventions are tested in trials, the effects are less than expected. This talk will review the empirical evidence for audit and feedback as an intervention to improve quality of care and summarize best practices in the design of such interventions. It will also explore how those leading quality improvement initiatives can simultaneously contribute to the underlying science regarding how the effectiveness of such interventions can be optimized.
