Funder: Oregon Patient Safety Commission
About Oregon Patient Safety Commission
The Oregon Patient Safety Commission (OPSC) offers a constructive space for healthcare facilities, providers, and patients to build a culture of safer care. OPSC promotes shared learning and candid dialogue to reduce the risk of patient harm across Oregon’s healthcare system. Its mission is to reduce the risk of serious adverse events occurring in Oregon’s healthcare system and encourage a culture of patient safety.
About the Opportunity
The Oregon Patient Safety Commission seeks the services of an evaluator to review and recommend improvements to the data collection process for Oregon’s innovative Early Discussion and Resolution (EDR) program. Since 2014, EDR has promoted open conversation between patients who experienced harm (or their family members) and their healthcare providers. EDR provides confidentiality protections for these important conversations to encourage participants to talk candidly about the harm that occurred, work toward reconciliation outside of the legal system, and contribute to safeguarding others from similar harm.
Applications are due April 1, 2022.
