The University of Minnesota Department of Neurosurgery will host NeuroSafe 2016 on July 14 - 16, 2016. This 2.5 day symposium offers a conversation on how to improve safety and quality in neurosurgery. On local, state, and national levels, providers face challenges in providing high-quality, safe neurosurgical care in complex healthcare systems. A focus by governments, commercial organizations, and neurosurgical professionals on the topics of quality and safety demonstrates gaps in this knowledge area. Considering the Triple Aim of patient outcomes, costs and patient experience, neurosurgery needs to grow our knowledge and practical experience through national experts and sharing across organizations on strategies, studies and ideas to achieve these aims. Achieving positive patient outcomes for all neurosurgical patients will be achieved through interactive case-based presentations, case reviews and discussions.
Key topics of the symposium include:
- Quality & Safety improvement efforts across all practice settings
- Quality & Safety outcome measures
- Quality & Safety challenges
- Quality & Safety leading the national conversation
