Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Tamra Strong, BA, RN, MSN-HCQ
Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder
Reliability 4Life

The Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA) partnered with UK HealthCare and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services as part of the Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) to launch the Kentucky Statewide Opioid Stewardship (KY SOS) program.
 
The KY SOS Program is working with Kentucky hospitals to fight the opioid epidemic.  The program provides services to inpatient, outpatient primary care clinics, and has just expanded its bandwidth to include emergency departments (ED) across the Commonwealth. Reducing opioid overprescribing while improving safe opioid use in inpatient and primary care clinics in Kentucky continues to be the KY SOS mainstay and goal. With the addition of the ED Bridge program, KY SOS now addresses the full continuum of care for Kentucky patients, treatment of pain and treating those with opioid use disorder (OUD).
 
The newest initiative within KY SOS is the launch of the Emergency Department (ED) Bridge Program.  The main objective of the ED Bridge Program is to ensure patients with OUD receive 24/7 access to care.  EDs have an incredible opportunity to make OUD treatment accessible to all.  
 
The state has 11 ED Bridge Programs in place, making a difference in the lives of patients and their communities.  The KY SOS team will continue to expand the ED Bridge Programs into acute care hospital EDs across the state.  
 
The KY SOS ED Bridge Program goal is to increase access to treatment and assist patients in their road to recovery, thus saving lives in Kentucky communities.

Nursing leaders fulfill a key role in assuring quality and safe health care. Join this session to see how nursing leaders demonstrate the ways collaboration achieves highly reliable health care across a hospital system.

  • Discuss high reliability organizing (HRO) and its core purpose
  • Describe the nurse leader’s role in organizing highly reliable safe human performance
  • Demonstrate regular assessments of highly reliable human performance
  • Participate in the shaping of a reliable health care industry in the future
