PULSE of NY's 2nd annual symposium, The Changing Culture of Healthcare: Impacting Patient Safety on April 20, 2015 is a learning opportunity for both healthcare professionals and community members. It will take place at the Holiday Inn, 215 Sunnyside Blvd, Plainview, NY 11803. 

Our scheduled speaker is David Marx,JD an internationally recognized safety pioneer in the practice of “Just Culture.” David began his career as a Boeing aircraft design engineer and won the International Whittle Award for the development of a human error investigation process now used by air carriers around the world. David authored the National Institutes of Health document "Patient Safety and the 'Just Culture': A Primer for Healthcare Executives,” and served as an advisor to the Federal Aviation Administration's Human Factors Research Program and to the NASA Space Shuttle Program.

When we work for a company or organization that has a mission, we are expected to represent that mission in all we do. When something goes wrong, in a "Just Culture" that experience is used to improve the system and as part of the solution.

At PULSE of NY we believe that even if there is a loss because of medical injury, patients and families can be part of the solution. By giving the patient and family a voice, we too are part of the "Just Culture" and a partner in that road to improvement.
