HEAL® Prepare Toolkit: Communicating After Harm Events

After a harm event occurs, patients/residents and families need immediate, accurate and compassionate communication. Care teams must be ready to communicate in those crucial first minutes after an event, and then in follow-up conversations over days, weeks, or even months.  This webinar will help care teams prepare for an honest dialogue after harm events to maintain trust with the patient/resident, facilitate partnership in ongoing care, and give care teams peace of mind.

This webinar will provide information enabling you to: 

  1. Learn how to facilitate a culture of open and compassionate communication when things go wrong.
  2. Identify the preparation necessary before communicating after harm events.
  3. Understand what to say to patients/residents and families, how to say it and how to manage difficult questions.
