Register!- MAPS PSO Safe Table - HRO & EMT

MAPS PSO recognizes the unique challenges our members face. Learn and experience a new approach to high reliability through Error Management Theory (EMT) as a pathway to High Reliability Organizing (HRO). HRO is a way of strategic thinking, operational deployment, and organizational learning. Facilitated discussion will provide MAPS members and colleagues the opportunity to collaborate on the issues and challenges surrounding recognizing errors and implementing changes.. 


High Reliability Organizing & Error Management Theory

Register!  Please note that registration will  be limited at the Naperville IHA offices only. We are encouraging you to send patient safety teams, but if the Naperville location reaches capacity, we will compile a wait list..

When: Monday, March 5, 2018
Onsite in Naperville and Springfield, IL
Check-in: 8:00 am
Time:  8:30 am to 3:00 pm


Why do we need EMT today? 
Our healthcare processes are vulnerable to the effects of human error. Focusing our efforts and resources solely on error avoidance and risk elimination won’t get us to our goals.  Healthcare organizations seeking high reliability must assist frontline staff on recognizing errors when they happen.

Join the MAPS PSO community for a full-day; interactive safe table that teaches participants to transform error avoidance-based practices into error recognition and recovery.  Attendees will learn how to use both low & high fidelity simulations to teach EMT.

Content Expert:
Oren Guttman, MD, MBA, CHSE, CPPS, High Reliability Officer, High Reliability Team, UT Southwestern Medical in Dallas, Texas

Learning Objectives:
1. Participants will socialize, describe, differentiate, and review EMT and the role of simulation as a pathway to HRO

2. Participants will collaborate on best practices related to common preventable adverse events and infections

3. Participants will engage in EMT immersion and problem-based learning to transform error avoidance system approaches to error recognition, rescue and recovery strategies
