How does a major disruption such as the COVID-19 pandemic impact other efforts? Hospitals have been working for some time to incorporate high reliability principles into routine operations. Rather than setting aside these efforts during the crisis, some hospitals recognized that use of these principles is essential to organizational resilience. This webinar will provide a brief overview of high reliability principles, how they have been both applied in hospitals and adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the five principles from high reliability organizations

  • Describe how other hospitals have applied these principles

  • Apply use of the principles in their own organization
