Who May Use PSWP in Our Organization? — E.D., from a hospital in Northern California
Those who are a part of the work force at the CHPSO member organization can use PSWP. These are hospital staff including technicians, nurses, and physicians, a well as those who are contractors, including legal counsel. The PSWP can be used for any purpose and it does not have to be de-identified. PSWP can be used across different committees and meetings; however, it cannot be used in a peer review disciplinary hearing.
PSWP can be shared with other CHPSO member hospitals (with direct identifiers removed) and of course, with CHPSO. For further information, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
