CMPA Announces Inaugural Surgical Safety Program

Theatre Arts — The CMPA surgical safety course

CMPA is pleased to announce that they will offer the inaugural program to surgical teams October 2-4, 2019, at the CMPA building in Ottawa.

Participants will be selected once they submit an application including a surgical safety project that they wish to lead. The course will consist of plenaries, interactive discussions, case studies, and journal clubs. Various group activities will encourage cross-pollination of ideas and networking opportunities.

The three-day Theatre Arts program aims to foster collegial bonds among team participants. The collaborative approach will allow participants to build their personal network and encourage mutual support when implementing their projects.

Highly skilled faculty members, including physician advisors and national opinion leaders in surgical safety, will be delivering this evidence-based program. Using a combination of journal clubs, didactic plenaries, experiential sessions and small group work, participants will explore the human, organizational, and cultural themes that contribute to surgical harm.

Participants will learn how these themes apply to their work environment and will work in teams to generate actionable interventions.
