Room: Room 209

Many AAPM members are interested in improving patient safety via prospective risk management, but find the process difficult to begin. Learning the analysis techniques alone is not sufficient. AAPM members need to persuade their clinical team of its usefulness, and guide a diverse group through the process. This symposium focuses on case studies of the implementation of prospective risk management, both in a community practice setting and in a large academic center. In a community setting, persuading the department to allocate limited time and resources, and then determining how to optimize their use, is a huge hurdle. In an academic setting, coordination and communication of large multi-disciplinary teams makes performing and implementing the risk management program challenging. Our speakers will discuss both successes and areas for future improvement. Following the presentation, attendees should have the insight and confidence needed to begin an effective prospective risk management program in their own departments.

Learning Objectives:
1. How to persuade others to participate in prospective risk analysis
2. How to simplify the risk analysis
3. What costs/benefits were observed from performing the risk analysis
