New program supported by Hospital Auxiliary and Foundation

The Campbell River Hospital Auxiliary and Campbell River Hospital Foundation announced today that they joined together to support the MORE OB program; a comprehensive performance improvement program that creates a culture of patient safety in obstetrical units.  MORE OB is an inclusive program that will include all physicians who practice obstetrics in our area as well as all nursing staff in the Campbell River Hospital Maternity Department.  The purpose of the program is to build and sustain a culture of patient safety through the development of knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviors and practices that make safety the number one priority for all members of the team, all of the time.   MORE OB has been delivered to over 300 hospitals and more than 14,000 participants in 10 years and Campbell River Hospital is the first Island Health site to implement this important program.  A three year program, MORE OB consists of on-line learning, skills drills, workshops and clinical examinations to ensure the whole team within the obstetrical unit is working from the same page.
