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.


The call for papers and for posters for the 2016 NPSF Congress will open in fall 2015. Please check back.
