Glen Carbon, IL….Sorry Works! is proud to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with ELM Exchange, Inc, the leading provider of on-line risk management and patient safety continuing education.

“This will be a powerful partnership,” said Doug Wojcieszak, Sorry Works! Founder.  “Partnering with ELM gives us the ability to develop on-line learning tools to teach disclosure and empathy to thousands of front-line staff in acute and long-term settings in an economic and scalable fashion.   ELM knows on-line training, and Sorry Works! knows disclosure --- this is a perfect match.”

“One of the great challenges in disclosure today is getting the message down to the front-line staff.  It’s not enough for the CEO, risk manager, and general counsel to embrace disclosure…front-line physicians and nurses need to understand their unique role in the disclosure process too, and on-line learning tools are the best way to reach these people.  Products created by the ELM-Sorry Works! Partnership will help healthcare organizations meet this challenge,” added Wojcieszak.

ELM and Sorry Works! will be showcasing their partnership and discussing their new on-line training module for front-line staff at the ASHRM Annual Meeting in Washington, DC October 7th – 9th.   Please visit us at the ELM Exchange Booth #129.

“We are thrilled to be working with Sorry Works!,” said Jennifer Hurley, CPHRM, CCMEP, ELM’s chief operating officer, “their mission in improving communication between healthcare professionals and patients helps to remove the stigma associated with adverse outcomes or errors. This parallels our own mission in advancing healthcare quality through patient safety risk recognition and mitigation continuing education.”
