Why Integrated Risk Management (IRM)? IRM promotes managing risk from an organization-wide perspective and therefore not in silos created by departments or job functions (e.g. IT risks, HR risks, privacy risks, clinical risks, disaster preparedness risks, etc.) It requires an ongoing assessment of risks at every level and in every department of the organization, aggregating these results at the corporate level, communicating them and ensuring adequate monitoring and review.
In addition to discussing practices related to risk management, the conference addresses current top risks in the Canadian health care sector such as cyber-attacks and man-made or environmental disasters. This conference connects all involved in risk and safety at all levels of health care organizations for one day of networking and multidisciplinary education.
