Training Opportunities

Our core trainings provide healthcare leaders and providers with the skills to launch a CRP in their institution.

We offer trainings throughout the year. Our faculty are the creators and early adopters of CRPs. They bring a combination of intellectual rigor and on-the-ground experience to assist healthcare institutions in successfully adopting CRPs.

  • CRP 101: A one- to two-hour webinar designed to introduce the CRP concept to interested clinicians, healthcare organizations, and liability insurers.
  • CRP Leader Retreat: A two-day intensive, simulation-based training designed to provide organizational teams with an in-depth understanding of the key elements of a CRP and a process for making an informed decision to launch a CRP.

17th Annual Northwest Patient Safety Conference

May 7, 2019 | Seattle, WA

Washington Patient Safety Coalition’s Northwest Patient Safety Conference is back May 7, 2019 at the Hilton Seattle Airport with a full day of sessions around the theme Raising the Bar on Compassion for Patients and Providers. The event will include breakout sessions covering topics of empathetic engagement with patients, compassionate care for caregivers, innovations in improving diagnoses, a special track on communication & resolution implementation following adverse events, and more, with each talk introduced by a first-hand patient story. Dr. Bryan Sexton of Duke University Patient Safety Center will deliver the morning keynote followed up by an afternoon plenary by Dr. Michael Goldberg of Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, both bringing different angles to the topic of burnout and how compassionate systems help to reduce it, delivering better outcomes for both patients and providers. Dr. Mark Graber, founder of the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) and Sue Sheridan, SIDM’s Director of Patient Engagement and a passionate long-time patient advocate inspired by her family’s own experiences with adverse events (and recently starring in the documentary, To Err is Human!), will deliver back-to-back closing sessions covering the problem of diagnostic error and how true patient engagement is a key part of the solution.
