Wednesday, July 28th, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

Practice change is a constant struggle for healthcare organizations because the only constant is change.

Patient safety culture, robust training, and interdisciplinary communication and collaboration at every level are all key to providing the safest care and optimal patient outcomes as best practices evolve. Strong leadership is also required to set the vision and enable successful implementation of practice changes.

This session will explore how Texas Health Huguley Hospital, part of AdventHealth, implemented new glycemic management technology in the intensive care unit with a pharmacy-led workflow, and how this helped manage physician practice change.

In this session you'll learn:

  • The key cultural elements of organizations that successfully manage practice change
  • Benefits of a pharmacy-led glycemic management program
  • Practical tips & examples for enabling high-quality interdisciplinary communication and collaboration
