Are your fixes to re-emerging problems starting to feel like Band-Aids for a major bleed? Do you spend too much time rolling out improvements that do not get adopted? If so, you may want to consider using HumanCentered Design (HCD). HCD is understanding the lived experiences of the people with whom you interact so that your designed product or service will be meaningful and of value. The Regions team will discuss their HCD experiences that led to a sustained reduction in hospital acquired conditions and infections, improvements in nurse onboarding and education and hospitalist driven design that supports top of license work for all care team members.

This presentation is born out of work done by Dr. Nelson and the recognition of the impact of racism and provider bias on racial disparities in health care. Nelson has done extensive research and training on this content extensively for the last 7 years and, with Dr. Heather Hickman, has been conducting racial justice trainings for physicians, nurses, students and others in the Upper Midwest. As a result, he has accrued information regarding the transformation of racial disparities and will share this in his presentation.

In response to the opioid epidemic, CHI St. Gabriel’s Health helped develop an innovative model to prevent prescription drug and opioid abuse.

As a result, prescription drug usage has decreased substantially. Join us as we hear from this award-winning team about their collaboration with multiple partners, lessons-learned and successes.

Approximately 1 in 10 Americans age 60 and older have experienced some form of elder abuse.

This presentation will provide an overview of the changes and new tools and resources available to reduce wrong site, wrong procedure events and will walk through the experience of a hospital implementing these tools.
