NYSIM is pleased to announce that Dr. Dena Goffman will be leading a workshop entitled “Collaborative Teams: Optimizing Patient Care and Outcomes” as well as a grand rounds entitled “Fostering Obstetric Simulation & Safety Initiatives Through Collaboration” on Tuesday March 31, 2015 at NYSIM. Dena Goffman, MD, FACOG, is currently an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology & Women’s Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Director of Maternal Safety & Simulation at Montefiore Medical Center. She has a strong interest in improving pa-tient safety and quality in obstetrics. Much of her work focuses on the use of simulation, team training and imple-mentation of evidence based guidelines to achieve this goal. Although her clinical background is in Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dr. Goffman’s workshop and grand rounds will be widely applicable to other disciplines as she has participants think critically about implementation of new team training initiatives or augmentation of existing pro-grams as well the role of simulation to help achieve common patient safety goals and objectives.
