AETN explores quality improvement movement in Arkansas medicine

CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) - The Arkansas Educational Television Network explores the quality improvement movement in Arkansas health care in "Remaking Arkansas Medicine," airing Thursday, Oct. 5, at 6:30 p.m.

Host Anne Jansen and a panel of experts discuss ways to educate and motivate individuals to take personal responsibility for the health care. The panel includes: Dr. Joe Thompson, Arkansas Surgeon General and Director of the Arkansas Center for Health Improvement; Jan Guthrie, founder of The Health Resource Inc.; and Dr. Nick Paslidis, chief executive officer for the Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care.

"Remaking Arkansas Medicine" will highlight Arkansas Champions of Change - people and organizations that are positively influencing the quality of health care in the state. Among those selected as Champions of Change are: Gov. Mike Huckabee, Baxter Regional Medical Center, Baptist Health, Randolph County Medical Center, Greene Acres Nursing Home, Stuttgart Regional Medical Center, Delta Area Health Education Center (Delta AHEC), St. Joseph's Mercy Health Center, the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation and Guthrie. To learn more about these Champions of Change, visit www.ram.aetn.org.

The program is a 30-minute local follow up to the four-part PBS series "Remaking American Medicine - Health Care for the 21st Century." The series, which will air each Thursday in October at 9 p.m. beginning Oct. 5, examines critical health care issues facing Americans today, including patient safety, medical and medication errors, hospital-acquired infections, family-centered care and effective management of chronic disease.
