Educational Materials

PPAHS’s educational initiatives target issues that are central to improving patient safety and the continuum of care.

These educational initiatives include Patient Safety Podcasts & Videos, which explore safety issues and ways to improve health outcomes. Focusing on opioid safety (pain management), venous thromboembolism (blood clots), and alarm management (noise fatigue), the PPAHS Patient Safety Podcasts and Videos offer in-depth interviews with thought leaders, researchers, patients, and health care professionals from the field to bring a diverse set of perspectives on patient safety issues.

These educational initiatives also include advocating for patient safety at conferences, through traditional and online media, and the development of innovative forms of education and patient assistance through virtual patient interaction and mobile applications to improve the education of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other clinicians.

In particular, PPAHS would like to thank the following supporters for their unrestricted grant support for our educational initiatives –

  1. I’m looking for an interview you all did with a male doctor or respiratory therapist (??) associated with the hospital in Georgia that has such a good record regarding adverse events caused by opioid overdoses. It’s a fairly long interview and he was really convincing regarding the advantage of using capnography and not just using pulse oximeters with the patients receiving opioids. Is there any chance you could respond to my email address with a link to that interview? Thank you!
