Webinar
Improving Adult Immunizations and the Importance of Healthcare Worker Immunization
Thursday, August 30, 2018 from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. CST (Click here to register)

Annually thousands of Americans are hospitalized and even die due to vaccine-preventable diseases. Healthcare workers care for people at high risk for influenza-related complications so it is especially important for them to get recommended vaccinations. In this webinar, immunization expert, Dr. L J Tan, will lead a discussion on issues related to adult vaccine preventable diseases with emphasis on the importance of healthcare worker immunizations for disease prevention. Cost burden and strategies to improve healthcare work immunizations will also be addressed.

Target Audience:
Front line staff of clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, home health, hospice, public health, nursing homes, consumers and families, and all community partners who will benefit from a discussion addressing adult immunizations.

Objectives:
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the morbidity, mortality and cost burden of adult vaccine preventable diseases
2. Discuss the importance of healthcare worker immunization in terms of disease prevention and economic burden
3. Discuss strategies to improve healthcare worker immunization coverage rates

Kansas hospitals participating in the KHC Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) are encouraged to attend a virtual meeting on Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. CT.  The monthly meetings provide direct access to subject matter experts, peer-to-peer sharing and KHC HIIN project leaders.  This also is a good opportunity to stay in the know about the project, progress to date, resources and opportunities in quality and patient safety.

This month, we will welcome Betsy Lee, MSPH, RN, improvement advisor from Cynosure Health, along with two Kansans who recently completed the 2018 Quality Improvement Fellowship sponsored by the HRET HIIN and conducted with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).

Tina Capeder, MBA, director of quality, risk and compliance at Anderson County Hospital in Garnett, Kansas, will share a project she is leading to prevent falls with injury, starting in their long-term care unit.  In addition, Tammy Cunningham, RN, BSN, quality and outcomes coordinator for Olathe Health System, will share a project she is leading to reduce 30-day all-cause readmissions.  Tina and Tammy will share background to selecting their projects, development of their driver diagrams, measures, data, lessons-learned and plans for overcoming barriers, and next steps.

KHC HIIN Webinar - July 25

July 25, 2018 
10:00 - 11:00 a.m. CT

Kansas hospitals participating in the KHC Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) are encouraged to attend a virtual meeting on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. CT.  The monthly meetings provide direct access to subject matter experts, peer-to-peer sharing and KHC HIIN project leaders. This also is a good opportunity to stay in-the-know about the project, progress to date, resources and opportunities in quality and patient safety.

This month's topic will be a follow-up to the KHC HIIN Sepsis Champion Workshop, which was held in Manhattan on June 27.

Suzanne Fletcher, Wesley Healthcare sepsis coordinator, and Maryanne Whitney, Cynosure Health improvement advisor, and others will be on hand to continue the dialogue on several topics covered at the workshop that day.

In the evaluations received, several attendees asked for more information and discussion related to sepsis transfer and related barriers.  Maryanne will share what a small group of hospitals learned during the recently completed HRET HIIN SNAP hospital project on sepsis transfers.  (SNAP is the acronym for Safety Networks to Accelerate Performance, HRET's voluntary learning networks that address emerging best practices related to HIIN topics.)  Maryanne also will introduce the new driver diagram and the transfer tool that was developed as a part of the SNAP, which was co-led by Suzie and Dr. Brent Duran at Wesley Healthcare.  You will be among the first to have it!

We also will hear from Michelle Sigmund from the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care.  She will introduce a new hospital-specific sepsis readmissions report that KFMC will soon be providing for your hospital.
