Rapid-Fire Patient Safety Rounds: A New Paradigm for Safety Discourse

In this episode of the STS Webinar Series, a panel comprising residents and surgeons shares a novel approach to Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (QIPS) rounds. Two case scenarios are used to demonstrate a structured, multidisciplinary approach to phase-of-care analysis of CT surgery patients. The group also discusses the impact of QIPS rounds on team culture within a surgical division that has adopted the framework.
