Support Simulation & Patient Safety!!
Dr. Glenn Posner
Help me win the Medicine Ball and make a donation in support of The Ottawa Hospital!
Dear Friends, Family, Patients, Colleagues,
The University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Centre provides an essential service to the medical community of Ottawa, training medical students, residents, nurses and practicing physicians to provide world class care.
What you may not know is that since 2014 the Sim centre has been running "medical fire drills" within The Ottawa Hospital for the purpose of interprofessional education (nurses, docs, respiratory therapists - the whole healthcare team) and discovery of latent quality threats; during the simulated cases we find hidden problems in the system or knowledge gaps in the team and fix them before they affect real patients. I am so proud of the work we have done with this in-situ simulation program ove the last 5 years, but the funding for this program, which came from a generous donation from RBC, is nearly finished.
I need your help to continue the important work being done by the TOH Simulation Patient Safety Program. Please dig deep and donate now to this important cause that is near and dear to my heart.
