Speaker: Chris Hayes
Title: Creating highly adoptable improvement: development of a model and tool
Description: Although it is imperative that we improve health care, addressing this challenge can put increased demands on point-of-care providers. Successful implementation requires that workloads and providers’ sense of the value of change be acknowledged. Otherwise, an improvement initiative may fail and overburden staff, only contributing to burnout, workarounds, and errors. During this session, the Highly Adoptable Improvement model and toolkit will be presented. Chris W. Hayes, MD, MSc, MEd, a 2013-2014 Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice and Improvement Fellow at the Institute of Healthcare Improvement and a critical care physician, is Medical Director for Quality and Performance at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. He also serves as Medical Officer for the Canadian Patient Safety Institute and is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine and the Institute of Health Policy, Management, and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. Dr. Hayes has led many quality improvement initiatives and is a core faculty member in the Masters of Quality Improvement and Patient Safety program at the University of Toronto.
