Collaboration for Transformation: Patients as Partners Driving Patient Safety Improvement

Tuesday, April 16
1:00 to 2:15 PM MDT

At the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health Symposium, CPSI will host a livestream panel discussion about experiences and lessons learned from the National Patient Safety Consortium. More than 50 stakeholders — including healthcare organizations, healthcare providers, governments, professional groups, patients and families, regulators, educators, and national and provincial agencies and associations — gathered to demand action on patient safety, with patient involvement key in every aspect of the strategy and action plan. The speakers will specifically highlight medication safety efforts that have transformed both policy and practice in Canada and around the world, improving health care experiences and outcomes.

How safe is the care we receive? You have 3 guesses

Thursday, April 25
10:00 to 11:00 AM MDT

How much do Canadians know about patient safety and patient harm? How many people have experienced harm from healthcare? Is patient safety a priority? Should it be?

Do you want to know about patient harm in our healthcare system? Studies show that, as soon as you know the scale of the patient safety crisis, you WILL want to know more about it.

Creating a Safe Space: Psychological Health and Safety of Healthcare Workers

Webinar Series
May 15, June 12, June 20, and September 12
10:00 to 11:00 AM MDT

One of the first challenges many organizations confront in exploring the feasibility of a Peer-to-Peer Support Program is the ambiguity surrounding what type of legal protections may be available against disclosure of these communications in legal proceedings like malpractice actions or professional disciplinary hearings, or in employment or college disciplinary proceedings. Our guest speakers will review the guidelines within “Creating a Safe Space” and endeavours to clarify the legal privilege and professional confidentiality considerations of implementing peer-to-peer support programs for health professionals who are emotionally affected by a Patient Safety Incident.

Accommodations

Did you know that your choice of hotel for the CSGNA National Conference has a direct impact on the association? In order to secure sufficient meeting space for the conference we must guarantee a minimum number of bedroom bookings by our delegates. Although we understand that making your reservations outside of the CSGNA block can sometimes be more economical, it may cause the association to have to pay a penalty for unbooked rooms within the contracted room block, which over time will result in higher conference registration fees. Please assist CSGNA by making your hotel reservation in the official conference block at the Delta Hotels St. John’s Conference Centre

DON’T PROSCRASTINATE!
We have established a reservations due date of August 23, 2019 for guestroom accommodations.
After the reservations due date, all room nights which have not been reserved will be returned to the hotel’s general inventory.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT TIMES
Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. Every effort is made to accommodate guests arriving before the check-in time, however, rooms may not be immediately available. Check-out time is 12:00 noon. Requests to retain rooms beyond that hour should be directed to the Front Desk.

ONE ROOM NIGHT NON-REFUNDABLE
When you book inside the block, you are taking up room nights. We anticipate that, in good faith, you will actually attend the conference and use those room nights. If you cancel, after the August 23 cut off, those rooms are no longer available at the negotiated rate for other delegates and the association will pay attrition. This means that no one can access those rooms. For this reason, we instituted a one night non-refundable fee.

Transforming Access to Specialist Care for Inflammatory Bowel Disease: The PACE Telemedicine Program/ Transformé l’accés au spécialiste pour les soins en MII: Programme Télémeédecine Paceb

Peter Habashi

Objectives:

  1. List benefits and challenges of Telemedicine program for IBD patients
  2. Discuss feasibility of IBD Telemedicine program for patients in Ontario Explain the impact of PACE
  3. List benefits and challenges of Telemedicine program for IBD patients
    program on wait-times and cost saving.

There are significant geographic disparities in the delivery of IBD healthcare in Ontario which may ultimately impact health outcomes. Telemedicine-based health services may potentially bridge gaps in access to gastroenterologists in remote and underserved areas. We describe the development and implementation of our Promoting Access and Care through Centres of Excellence (PACE) Telemedicine Program. Over the first 18 months, we measured wait times and potential cost savings. We found substantial deficiencies in specialist care early in the course of IBD and continuous IBD care in regions where the number of gastroenterologists per capita were low. The PACE Telemedicine Program enabled new IBD consultations within a median time of 17 days (interquartile range [IQR], 7 – 32 days) and visits for active BID symptoms with a median time of 8.5 days (IQR, 4 – 14 days). Forty-five percent of new consultations and 83% of patients with active IBD symptoms were seen within the target wait time of two weeks. Telemedicine services resulted in an estimated cost savings of $47,565 among individuals who qualified for Ontario’s Northern Travel Grant. The implementation of telemedicine services for IBD is highly feasible and can reduce wait times to see gastroenterologists that meet nationally recommended targets and can lead to substantial cost savings.

Implementing a Microbial Surveillance Program for Flexible Endoscopes/ Mise en oeuvre d’un programme de surveillance microbienne pour les endoscopes flexibles

Mary Ann Drosnock

Objectives:

  1. Discuss outbreaks in the news and why facilities would want to perform surveillance of endoscopes
  2. Outline what are considered organisms of concern in flexible endoscopes Review what type of testing methods are currently available for surveillance of flexible endoscopes
  3. Outline what are the options when a scope is positive for growth

Outbreaks of bacterial infections associated with endoscopes are often attributed to improperly reprocessed endoscopes. However, recent reports have identified bacterial transmission associated with persistently contaminated duodenoscopes for which no breaches in reprocessing were identified. Due to the increasing concern about the spread of communicable diseases and the challenging nature of flexible scopes to clean and disinfect, many facilities have implemented endoscope surveillance programs. This presentation will discuss what the current guidelines and methods are for culturing scopes, outline the options available for facilities to implement a surveillance program, and provide examples of what facilities are finding when performing the sampling.

Enhanced Visual Inspection of Flexible Endoscopes/ Inspection visuelle améliorée

Mary Ann Drosnock

Objectives:

  1. Define visually clean and enhanced visual inspection for endoscopes
  2. Review the latest information from various organizations on enhanced visual inspection Define best practices for enhanced visual inspection of medical devices

During this presentation we will explore the development of new technologies in the area of enhanced visual inspection of endoscopes. Recent incidents of infections transmitted to patients from dirty endoscopes have led to changes in how healthcare professional, especially reprocessing staff, visually inspect these devices. We will discuss the development of new inspection technologies, such as lighted magnifiers and borescopes for examination of internal channels of endoscopes. These advanced enhanced visual inspection tools are discussed in the latest standards and guidelines and are cutting edge technology that can be used to deliver safe, ready-to-use medical devices to the next patient.

Objectives:

  1. Rappeler les caractéristiques et les risques que représentent les rayons X en milieu médical et plus particulièrement dans le domaine de la gastro-entérologie
  2. Rappeler les principes de base de radioprotection pour le personnel et pour les patients lors de procédures de CEPR

Avec l’utilisation de plus en plus répandue des rayonnements ionisants dans le domaine médical, on note une préoccupation croissante accordée aux effets possibles de ces radiations pour les patients et également pour le personnel soignant. En gastro-entérologie, on utilise les rayons X notamment pour des interventions diagnostiques et thérapeutiques sur le voies pancréato-biliaires lors de cholangio-pancréatographie rétrogrades endoscopiques (CPRE). Au cours de cette présentation, on rappellera les risques potentiels associés aux radiations utilisées dans le domaine médical. On rappellera aux utilisateurs des appareils à rayons X et au personnel soignant présent en salle les principes de base en matière de radiation : blindage, temps et distances. On verra enfin comment ces principes peuvent être mis en application dans le cas des procédures de CPRE en vue d’obtenir un niveau d’exposition qui soit le plus bas possible tenant compte du contexte (principe ALARA).

Jimmy Sévigny, Conférencier-motivateur | Coach personnel Jimmy Sévigny

Un peu plus sur Jimmy…

Tout au long de sa jeunesse, Jimmy a suivi un parcours qui semblait le mener nulle part, voir même à l’échec suprême : la mort. Dès l’âge de 8 ans, ce jeune garçon, originaire de la région du Saguenay dans la province de Québec (Canada), pesait déjà plus de 200 livres ( 91 kg). Les autres enfants s’amusaient à lui faire subir un jeu populaire dans la cour de récréation qu’ils prenaient méchamment plaisir à surnommer ¨roule la boule¨. À l’école secondaire, il a continué de s’enfoncer; À 16 ans, son poids frôlait maintenant les 400 livres (181 kg). Un soir de janvier, alors qu’il n’était âgé que de 19 ans, son cœur lui fit clairement comprendre qu’il n’était plus apte à supporter le poids de son corps qui atteignait maintenant la limite extrême de 452 livres (205 kg). À cet instant, il sentit que son heure était arrivée. Jimmy réalisa à quel point la vie était vraiment importante et que la santé est la chose la plus précieuse qu’il nous est possible de tenir entre nos mains.À force de courage et de persévérance, il finit par perdre plus de 272 livres (123 kg) par lui-même, sans avoir eu recours à une intervention chirurgicale. En 2003, considérant que l’adoption d’un mode de vie sain et actif lui avait sauvé la vie, Jimmy décida d’entreprendre un nouveau virage en s’inscrivant à l’université au Baccalauréat en sciences de l’activité physique. De plus, se cherchant constamment de nouveaux défis sportifs, ce jeune homme déterminé à toujours dépasser ses limites commence alors l’entraînement afin de compléter son premier triathlon de courte distance. La piqûre fut instantanée; cela l’amena à compléter 2 Ironman 140.6© ainsi que 4 Ironman 70.3©.

Sur le plan professionnel, Jimmy est à la recherche constante de dépassement. Alors qu’il enseigne l’éducation physique et dédie sa vie à la santé, il commence sa carrière de conférencier dans le milieu corporatif et scolaire avec un seul but, celui de prouver qu’il est possible de réaliser ses rêves lorsque l’on y croit vraiment et que l’on est prêt à y mettre les efforts nécessaires. D’ailleurs, son message est aujourd’hui devenu contagieux car Jimmy a été appelé a donné plus de 1000 conférences en motivation et séminaires sur la santé partout au Canada. Cela fait de lui un des conférenciers des plus en demande.

Sur la scène médiatique, lentement mais sûrement, Jimmy a commencé à se tailler une place. Nous avons pu l’apercevoir à l’écran dans des émissions sur les ondes de TVA telles que Salut Bonjour, 2 filles le matin, à plusieurs reprises sur LCN à Denis Lévesque, Le show du matin, à Canal Vie comme entraîneur dans SOS Santé, Le Parcours sur la chaîne MOI & CIE et dans Maigrir pour gagner, le défi du Québec sur Canal Vie (saison 1 & 2) . Cela le mena donc à travailler avec des personnes formidables telles que Chantal Lacroix, animatrice et productrice bien connue au Québec. Il s’est également associé à certaines compagnies dont Arc’teryx, Polar, Salomon ainsi que Momentum chiropratique.

Jimmy carbure aux projets!

Toujours à la recherche de nouveaux concepts ou de nouvelles idées, plus récemment, jimmy a lancé les coffrets DVD d’entraînement à 3 niveaux de difficultés Évolution et Transformation, il organise l’un des plus grands rassemblements de ce genre au Canada, les Mégas Workout, il lance des défis pour tous, les Défis Ironmans de Tremblant. Il invite la population à se questionner sur leur propre vie par son livre: » Être sur son X ». C’est «Pouce par pouce» que Jimmy a su entrer dans le coeur des gens et c’est aujourd’hui qu’il poursuit ses rêves en invitant le plus grand nombre de gens possible à «Activer le changement» !

Transforming Access to Specialist Care for Inflammatory Bowel Disease: The PACE Telemedicine Program/ Transformé l’accés au spécialiste pour les soins en MII: Programme Télémeédecine Paceb

Peter Habashi

Objectives: At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. List benefits and challenges of Telemedicine program for IBD patients
  2. Discuss feasibility of IBD Telemedicine program for patients in Ontario Explain the impact of PACE
  3. List benefits and challenges of Telemedicine program for IBD patients
    program on wait-times and cost saving.

There are significant geographic disparities in the delivery of IBD healthcare in Ontario which may ultimately impact health outcomes. Telemedicine-based health services may potentially bridge gaps in access to gastroenterologists in remote and underserved areas. We describe the development and implementation of our Promoting Access and Care through Centres of Excellence (PACE) Telemedicine Program. Over the first 18 months, we measured wait times and potential cost savings. We found substantial deficiencies in specialist care early in the course of IBD and continuous IBD care in regions where the number of gastroenterologists per capita were low. The PACE Telemedicine Program enabled new IBD consultations within a median time of 17 days (interquartile range [IQR], 7 – 32 days) and visits for active BID symptoms with a median time of 8.5 days (IQR, 4 – 14 days). Forty-five percent of new consultations and 83% of patients with active IBD symptoms were seen within the target wait time of two weeks. Telemedicine services resulted in an estimated cost savings of $47,565 among individuals who qualified for Ontario’s Northern Travel Grant. The implementation of telemedicine services for IBD is highly feasible and can reduce wait times to see gastroenterologists that meet nationally recommended targets and can lead to substantial cost savings.

Implementing a Microbial Surveillance Program for Flexible Endoscopes/ Mise en oeuvre d’un programme de surveillance microbienne pour les endoscopes flexibles

Mary Ann Drosnock

Objectives: At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss outbreaks in the news and why facilities would want to perform surveillance of endoscopes
  2. Outline what are considered organisms of concern in flexible endoscopes Review what type of testing methods are currently available for surveillance of flexible endoscopes

Outbreaks of bacterial infections associated with endoscopes are often attributed to improperly reprocessed endoscopes. However, recent reports have identified bacterial transmission associated with persistently contaminated duodenoscopes for which no breaches in reprocessing were identified. Due to the increasing concern about the spread of communicable diseases and the challenging nature of flexible scopes to clean and disinfect, many facilities have implemented endoscope surveillance programs. This presentation will discuss what the current guidelines and methods are for culturing scopes, outline the options available for facilities to implement a surveillance program, and provide examples of what facilities are finding when performing the sampling.

Principals of Modern Electrosurgery: Polypectomy Les Principes de l’Électrochirugie Moderne :Polypectomie (VANTAGE Endoscopy Inc.)

Collin DeSouza

Objectives: At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the impact of snare design on polypectomy techniques.
  • Guidance on the use of argon plasma coagulation to deliver non-contact monopolar electrosurgical energy.
  • Review principals for safely performing electrosurgery.

The overarching theme of this session will be that the use of the appropriate tools and techniques is important for minimizing the risk of complications associated with polypectomy, as well as recurrence in residual lesion rates which can be high – primarily due to incomplete resection.  Information specific to the role voltage, current, and impedance serves in administering power toward a therapeutic effect within a dynamic anatomy will be emphasized. Understanding these principles within the framework of differing waveforms used to create different tissue effects (cutting / coagulation) will better enable staff to make informed decisions regarding ESU settings, accessory selection and duration of the therapeutic effect.  Another topic of discussion is the role of Argon Plasma Coagulation in influencing tissue effect via a non-contact method of delivering monopolar electrosurgical energy. No instructional program concerning electrosurgical devices is complete without a discussion of safety. This component will review the basic principles of safe use including discussion of: pad placement, grounding principles, alarms and error handling, monopolar vs. bipolar circuits, pacemakers.

CLE Activity Toolkit

How to create learning objectives

Why learning objectives are needed

Participants in a learning activity need to understand what information or skills they will acquire during the session or event—this is a key component of adult learning. Well-defined learning objectives provide participants with this understanding.

Program developers normally arrive at the learning objectives after doing a needs assessment. The learning objectives in turn help potential participants determine whether an event or session meets their learning needs. Learning objectives clearly map the direction of the content, how it will be presented, and the expected outcome for all parties involved.

How to write learning objectives

Learning objectives should be specific and should be developed for both the overall educational event and the individual sessions.

1) Learning objectives must be written from the learner’s perspective. They should clearly state what a participant will know or be able to do as a result of attending an event or session. A learning objective typically completes a statement like the following:

At the end of this session, participants will be able to _________

or

Upon completion of the conference, participants should be able to _________

2) Next, your statement needs an action verb describing what the participant will be able to do or the action they will be able to undertake. Avoid using vague or abstract words like believe, value, appreciate, be aware of, be familiar with, etc.

3) Complete the statement with the details of what the participant will be doing when they are demonstrating the action. The details should be specific and refer to the outcome of the learning objective.

Some effective verbs:

For more, see this list of verbs for formulating learning objectives.

Some examples

(For personal knowledge management)

At the end of this session, participants will be able to

  • identify skills related to the creation and use of knowledge that is relevant and important to them;
  • describe the knowledge transfer/translation process when dealing with information; and
  • apply methods that will allow for the creation, gathering, distribution and use of knowledge and information.

(For gap analysis)

At the end of this session, participants will be able to

  • differentiate between subjective and objective needs assessment and describe the importance of both;
  • use methods to identify the gap between current and desired skill/competency; and
  • access resources to assist in filling in areas where a gap in knowledge or skill has been identified.

CONTINUOUS LEARNING ACTIVITY FOR CANADIAN NURSES ASSOCIATION (CNA) CERTIFICATION:

While this educational activity is not officially endorsed by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), nurses may claim it as a continuous learning (CL) activity toward renewal of the CNA certification credential if it is related to their nursing specialty. Pre-authorization from the CNA Certification Program is not required. Participants are encouraged to retain a confirmation of attendance.

This event is a Continous Learning Activity as defined by the Canadian Nurses Association. You may claim a maximum of 18.0 hours.

Dawn Banavage, R.N., Resource Nurse, Therapeutic Endoscopy, St. Michael’s Hospital

My nursing career to date, has spanned 35 years, and during that time I have seen, first hand, some of the most exciting innovations and breakthroughs in medicine. I began my career by learning how to care for our most fragile patients, in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Women’s College Hospital. Although I enjoyed this challenging and immensely satisfying job, after 8 years, I decided it was time to learn something new. I took a post graduate certificate in Operating Room Nursing, and got a job at St. Michael’s Hospital. Through my years in the O.R. I was always interested in, and engaged in quality improvements. I was the Team Leader/Resource Nurse for the department of ENT for several years, and I was instrumental in redesigning our carts and picklists for trauma surgeries. During my time there I was an active member of the O.R. Council and the Nursing Advisory Council, and at our first annual O.R. Nursing Conference, I gave a presentation on patient positioning during general anesthesia. The bug to learn something new struck me once again, and about 8 years ago I made the move to Therapeutic Endoscopy. I am very proud to be a part of this amazing unit, and a member of our highly trained team. Advanced therapeutic endoscopy is at the cutting edge of today’s advancements in medicine, and I am thrilled to have been a part of some of the ‘firsts’, in terms of procedures and new technologies, that have been done in Canada at St. Michael’s Hospital. Working in this unit has also given me the opportunity to continue my commitment to quality assurance and high level patient care.

Stéphanie Ferland

I am an gastroenterologist working most of the time as a clinician in a tertiary universitary hospital in Quebec City. I have graduated from Laval University in 2012 and pursued a year fellowship in liver diseases in Clichy, France alongside Pr Dominique Valla where I had the chance to evaluate and participate in the follow up of many patients with various liver diseases, many of them suffering from vascular liver diseases. I have a personal interest in NAFLD/NASH because I consider this pathology (and its associated conditions) to be of the utmost importance in a world where the obesity epidemic probably means that the next generation will have shorter lifespan than their parents. Aside my work as a clinician, I have also been teaching and co-directing the pre-clinician gastroenterology class at Laval University since 2013.

Jimmy Sévigny, Conférencier-motivateur | Coach personnel Jimmy Sévigny

Un peu plus sur Jimmy…

Tout au long de sa jeunesse, Jimmy a suivi un parcours qui semblait le mener nulle part, voir même à l’échec suprême : la mort. Dès l’âge de 8 ans, ce jeune garçon, originaire de la région du Saguenay dans la province de Québec (Canada), pesait déjà plus de 200 livres ( 91 kg). Les autres enfants s’amusaient à lui faire subir un jeu populaire dans la cour de récréation qu’ils prenaient méchamment plaisir à surnommer ¨roule la boule¨. À l’école secondaire, il a continué de s’enfoncer; À 16 ans, son poids frôlait maintenant les 400 livres (181 kg). Un soir de janvier, alors qu’il n’était âgé que de 19 ans, son cœur lui fit clairement comprendre qu’il n’était plus apte à supporter le poids de son corps qui atteignait maintenant la limite extrême de 452 livres (205 kg). À cet instant, il sentit que son heure était arrivée. Jimmy réalisa à quel point la vie était vraiment importante et que la santé est la chose la plus précieuse qu’il nous est possible de tenir entre nos mains.À force de courage et de persévérance, il finit par perdre plus de 272 livres (123 kg) par lui-même, sans avoir eu recours à une intervention chirurgicale. En 2003, considérant que l’adoption d’un mode de vie sain et actif lui avait sauvé la vie, Jimmy décida d’entreprendre un nouveau virage en s’inscrivant à l’université au Baccalauréat en sciences de l’activité physique. De plus, se cherchant constamment de nouveaux défis sportifs, ce jeune homme déterminé à toujours dépasser ses limites commence alors l’entraînement afin de compléter son premier triathlon de courte distance. La piqûre fut instantanée; cela l’amena à compléter 2 Ironman 140.6© ainsi que 4 Ironman 70.3©.

Sur le plan professionnel, Jimmy est à la recherche constante de dépassement. Alors qu’il enseigne l’éducation physique et dédie sa vie à la santé, il commence sa carrière de conférencier dans le milieu corporatif et scolaire avec un seul but, celui de prouver qu’il est possible de réaliser ses rêves lorsque l’on y croit vraiment et que l’on est prêt à y mettre les efforts nécessaires. D’ailleurs, son message est aujourd’hui devenu contagieux car Jimmy a été appelé a donné plus de 1000 conférences en motivation et séminaires sur la santé partout au Canada. Cela fait de lui un des conférenciers des plus en demande.

Sur la scène médiatique, lentement mais sûrement, Jimmy a commencé à se tailler une place. Nous avons pu l’apercevoir à l’écran dans des émissions sur les ondes de TVA telles que Salut Bonjour, 2 filles le matin, à plusieurs reprises sur LCN à Denis Lévesque, Le show du matin, à Canal Vie comme entraîneur dans SOS Santé, Le Parcours sur la chaîne MOI & CIE et dans Maigrir pour gagner, le défi du Québec sur Canal Vie (saison 1 & 2) . Cela le mena donc à travailler avec des personnes formidables telles que Chantal Lacroix, animatrice et productrice bien connue au Québec. Il s’est également associé à certaines compagnies dont Arc’teryx, Polar, Salomon ainsi que Momentum chiropratique.

Jimmy carbure aux projets!

Toujours à la recherche de nouveaux concepts ou de nouvelles idées, plus récemment, jimmy a lancé les coffrets DVD d’entraînement à 3 niveaux de difficultés Évolution et Transformation, il organise l’un des plus grands rassemblements de ce genre au Canada, les Mégas Workout, il lance des défis pour tous, les Défis Ironmans de Tremblant. Il invite la population à se questionner sur leur propre vie par son livre: » Être sur son X ». C’est «Pouce par pouce» que Jimmy a su entrer dans le coeur des gens et c’est aujourd’hui qu’il poursuit ses rêves en invitant le plus grand nombre de gens possible à «Activer le changement» !

Communauté de pratique (CdP)

Communauté de pratique (CdP)

Les Communautés de pratique (CoP) de la SCIIGTA sont des groupes d'infirmières et d’infirmiers autorisés en gastroentérologie (infirmières et infirmiers autorisés, IPs et LPN/RPNs) qui partagent un intérêt commun dans un domaine spécifique des soins infirmiers spécialisés en gastroentérologie. La SCIIGTA, voyant une opportunité de stimuler l'apprentissage collaboratif, a développé un réseau entre ces personnes pour qu’elles puissent partager leurs connaissances individuelles et collectives et élaborer ensemble des lignes directrices et des documents de pratique.
