Cognitive Institute is partnering with Minter Ellison Lawyers to host open disclosure briefing sessions across Australia to assist hospitals and day procedure services prepare to meet new accreditation requirements in open disclosure.
The briefing sessions will provide CEOs, Directors of Clinical Service, Quality and Safety Managers and Practice Managers with information on how the new standard can impact accreditation requirements.
Dr Mark O’Brien, Medical Director of the Cognitive Institute, will present strategies for successful implementation and staff training in open disclosure, including case studies and lessons learnt from other healthcare providers. All attendees will also receive an organisational readiness checklist specifically developed by Cognitive Institute experts.
“The open disclosure requirement is new for private hospitals and day services and it means that you not only need to have a programme in place based on the National Open Disclosure Standard, you also need to train your clinicians in open disclosure.”
“While healthcare managers are already well aware of both the new accreditation framework and of open disclosure, our intent is that you will be able to leave the briefing either feeling completely prepared to tick that box on the accreditation paperwork or with a clear understanding of what steps you need to take before your next recertification audit or accreditation visit.”
