Members will learn the latest from Washington (and nationally) about labor relations and employment law during the ASHHRA upcoming Labor Relations webinar. Jim Trivisonno (IRI Consultants) and G. Roger King (HR Policy Association), both At-Large Members of ASHHRA’s Advocacy Committee, will discuss how the impact of the mid-term elections, infectious disease implications, including Ebola developments, expected National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) rule-making and other Board decisions will have on health care employers. Our presenters will review developments from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the courts. The webinar also will address data and labor trends recently published in the ASHHRA Labor Activity in Health Care Report and the latest tactics unions are using to organize health care employers. Finally, our presenters will review best practices to use to mitigate the risk of union activity.
Integrating Quality Improvement and Graduate Medical Education Into Your Hospital's Strategic Mission
Quality and safety initiatives are national priorities for health care, yet the role of graduate medical education in QI has not always been clear. In academic medical centers, residents and fellows play a critical role in patient care and, as such, their integration into QI presents a unique opportunity to affect change. Presenters Gary S. Kaplan, MD, FACP, FACMPE, FACPE, chairman and CEO of Virginia Mason Health System, and Kimberly Pierce-Boggs, executive director of the Alliance of Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC), will share successful examples of QI-GME integration and the positive results realized.
The session will provide a framework for QI-GME integration based upon the eight-year track record of the AIAMC National Initiative: Improving Patient Care through Medical Education. More than 450 residents and faculty from 55 hospitals and health systems across the United States have participated in the AIAMC's National Initiatives, and key lessons learned from these transformative experiences will be shared. AIAMC members from Virginia Mason Medical Center have participated in all four National Initiatives, and Dr. Kaplan will describe their journey of QI-GME integration, including the Toyota Production System, improvement workshops and systems-based electives.
