RO-ILS Peer Review Themed Report
RO-ILS: Radiation Oncology Incident Learning System®, is a free, national program in which participants have access to an online safety tool tied to a patient safety organization, with accompanying confidentiality and privilege protections outlined in the federal Patient Safety Act. More than 620 facilities have enrolled in the program and have access to the RO-ILS Portal where they enter a wide-range of safety events, analyze their trends and send data to a national database managed by Clarity PSO. Safety experts, the Radiation Oncology Healthcare Advisory Council (RO-HAC), mine the national database and develop education for the radiation oncology community. RO-ILS themed reports provide the public with multiple case examples and mitigation strategies focus on a specific topic. The Peer Review Themed Report contains five case examples and five mitigation strategies to limit ineffective and inadequate peer review. In order to promote positive safety culture, one case highlights how peer review can effectively identify errors and the importance of creating an environment in which any staff member can openly raise questions.
This activity is available from November 20, 2021, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on November 21, 2024.
