About the NPSF Annual Congress

As the only conference dedicated solely to patient safety, the NPSF Annual Congress is a unique opportunity for practitioners, leaders, and experts around the world to come together and share their knowledge.

There are many ways to address issues in patient safety, and Congress participants explore them by attending a variety of seminars, breakout sessions, workshops, demonstrations, and keynote presentations. The NPSF Congress is noted for its Learning & Simulation Center, where attendees gain understanding of situations, reactions, and interactions through participation in interactive simulations of health care scenarios. Congress participants also gain the opportunity to network with other professionals passionate about patient safety and to share best practices. They go home armed with tools and information they can use in order to make a direct impact.


This year our breakout sessions are offered in these six theme tracks:


Advancing Safety Science Implementation
Addressing the successful application of safety and improvement science to health care.

Creating a Culture of Safety in the Workplace
Addressing cultural and leadership imperatives and programs that improve joy and meaning of work and workforce safety.

In Safe Hands: Providing Safe Care for Kids….Even if You’re Not a Specialist
Virtually every health care organization and provider will care for our youngest of patients, from the newborn to the adolescent. This track is designed for all audiences, ranging from generalists to specialists.

Optimizing the Benefits and Minimizing the Harm of Health Technology
Addressing safety considerations and innovations related to technology, including HIT.

Patient Safety Beyond the Walls of the Hospital
Addressing safety issues and solutions in settings outside of the acute care hospital.

Sizzling in Scottsdale: Hot Topics in Patient Safety
Addressing newly emerging topics in patient safety.
