Filmed Lectures
Since its creation in 1999, the same year the Institute of Medicine issued its landmark report, To err is human, the Richardson Memorial Lecture has sparked and sustained conversation at the University of Virginia on the sensitive subject of medical error. The annual lectures ever since have brought to UVA noted experts on medical mistakes, communication about error, and the importance of clinicians' attending carefully to patients as persons. Collectively, the Richardson Lectures have provided opportunities for students, clinicians, educators, and administrators to learn better how to prevent medical errors, communicate about them when they do happen, improve quality of care in complex clinical systems, and assure patients and families of the best possible care and outcomes. The 2013 Richardson Lecturer is internationally known patient-safety expert Dr. Peter J. Pronovost, whose scientifically validated checklist protocol, developed at the Johns Hopkins University, is improving patient safety in health care institutions across the US and the world.
