Bow-Tie Analysis is one of many effective tools for communicating risk assessment. Discuss the bow-tie method and then provide another specific example of an effective tool that hospitals use for risk assessment. Which one would you implement in your area and why? Must provide specific examples of each being used and results. Discuss in what areas you feel a risk management analysis could be effective and why? Peers are expected to demonstrate critical thinking in their questions related to the classmates’ descriptions. See Discussion Expectations and Grading for rules on discussions.
