TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis for Patient Safety Improvement

Root Cause Analysis Techniques for Thorough & Credible Healthcare Patient Safety Investigations

What can you do to help your hospital eliminate patient safety incidents? The answer is EASY. Learn to apply the best root cause analysis techniques for investigating patient safety events and then implement effective corrective actions to improve patient safety.

What is the best root cause analysis technique? We know, without a doubt, it is TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis.

How do we know it? Because of the many success stories we have seen from TapRooT® Users from around the world.

Also, we know the extensive development and scientific basis that provides the foundation of TapRooT®.

How can you prove the value of TapRooT® to your hospital?

Attend our upcoming TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis for Patient Safety Improvement Course. We know you will find it valuable because we have guaranteed the course…

Course Guarantee

Attend this course, go back to your hospital, and use what you have learned to analyze patient safety events, incidents, near-misses, or quality problems. If you don’t find root causes that you previously would have overlooked and if you and your hospital management don’t agree that the corrective actions that you recommend are much more effective, just return your course materials/software and we will refund the entire course fee.

When and Where is the Course Being Held?

The course is being held before the Global TapRooT® Summit (March 11-13) on March 9-10. Where? At the Horseshoe Bay Resort near Austin, Texas. For more information about the venue, see:


What Will You Learn in the TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis for Patient Safety Improvement Course?

This is a special course designed to teach the advanced TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis System to people focused on improving patient safety.

We noticed long ago (1996) that hospitals weren’t finding the root causes of problems causing patient harm. We knew that the TapRooT® System could help. And we started getting leaders to try TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis to improve patient safety.

Fast forward to 2018. We wrote a book, Improve Patient Safety with TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis, a custom healthcare-oriented Root Cause Tree® Dictionary, and a course to teach the advanced TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis System to healthcare professionals.

Now, you can attend the first public course with all healthcare-related examples:
