  8. Phone conversation with Diane Rydrych. She works with hospitals and surgical centers to improve their adverse event reporting systems. Along with Stratis and the health care associations she provides training in Root Cause Analysis as astrategy to prevent/reduce incidents. She is interested in discussions to determine if the structural model developed for hospitals/surgical centers could be useful in other settings like long term care facilities. She needs a group to determine what issues are different, what would training look like and what context could be used to deliver the training. The group determined that CSI is an appropriate group to study the possibilities and work with the training if it’s determined to be an effective model for long term care facilities.
