June 21, 2022 Agenda

As the pandemic wanes, many healthcare settings are finding that it is not possible to simply return to pre-pandemic operational patterns. As physicians, nurses, and staff coped with COVID-induced disruptions they discovered a variety of adaptive operational strategies such as wellness focus and care delivery innovation that may be beneficial for future care. Crowd-sourcing the collective wisdom of these innovations is an important task for leaders in the next phase of our pandemic recovery. Liberating Structures is a set of tools which provides a methodology for harvesting these cultural and operational adaptations by allowing front line clinicians and staff to influence the design of post-pandemic care, feel ownership of the changes, and create novel approaches to patient safety and quality improvement.

Please join us as Ed Walker, MD facilitates an introduction to Liberating Structures as a care innovation methodology. Using small breakout groups and a summative plenary session, we will illustrate the power of selected tools in aggregating fresh approaches to common quality and safety challenges in our settings.
