Moving Ahead!

These are exciting times for Transparent Health – in the past few months we have seen the effectiveness of the “Story of Lewis Blackman” in a variety of educational settings – from the closing plenary at the National Patient Safety Foundation annual meeting to the new resident physician orientation at the University of Illinois at Chicago where over 250 new residents and interns watched the movie and reflected upon it with dozens of other health care professionals.

The key to improvement on Patient Safety and Quality relies on transparent, effective, and honest communication between care professionals with patients and their families from the beginning of the patient’s first encounter with a professional or an institution. We feel fortunate to be able to play a role with our colleagues and friends in the dissemination of that critical message.

The past Sixth Annual Telluride Patient Safety curricula meeting helped further refine and assess the “best practice” educational methodologies most effective for preparing the next generation of learners and faculty on the importance of transparency in health care. We look forward to sharing our lessons learned with all those committed to provide safe and high quality health care.
