Healthcare peer reviews - Getting it right for safety’s sake
There are multiple tools that help create safer patient environments. Among them, peer reviews are powerful because they give employees authentic performance feedback from someone who does the same job. These peer exchanges drive a culture of quality, learning and practice advancement.
An effective peer review program requires an understanding of peer review principals, plus an understanding of how nurse managers can facilitate the application of these principals in staff nurses and how human resource departments can facilitate the components of a peer review program.
In this webinar, Barb Haag-Heitman, RN, PhD, PHCNS-BC and Vicki George, RN, PhD, FAAN, authors of the book "Peer Review in Nursing: Principals for Successful Practice" ( May 2010) will discuss:
- The six principals of an effective peer review program

- The role of human resources in a peer program
