Events & Forums
As the only conference dedicated solely to patient safety, the NPSFAnnual Patient Safety 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 the issue of patient safety, and Congress participants explore them by attending a variety of seminars, breakouts sessions, workshops, demonstrations and plenaries. Participants also gain the opportunity to network with other professionals passionate about patient safety and share best practices in order to make a direct impact.
The 16th Annual NPSF Patient Safety Congress will take place May 14-16, 2014, in Orlando, Florida. The theme, ONE FOCUS, emphasizes the unity of vision of NPSF and of its Congress on improving safety in health care. See details and register at www.npsfcongress.org.
The NPSF Lucian Leape Institute Forum & Gala provides the opportunity to declare support for the Institute’s mission and meet with patient safety leaders from around the globe. The event is divided into two parts: an interactive afternoon forum with Institute members and an evening program. During the evening, guests attend a networking cocktail reception and enjoy dinner while hearing remarks from a special guest.
The Seventh Annual NPSF Lucian Leape Institute Forum & Gala is scheduled for Wednesday, September 17, 2014, with keynote speaker Dr. Peter Pronovost.
Patient Safety Awareness Week is an annual campaign led by NPSF to foster education and awareness around patient safety. Each year has a distinct theme, in order to allow participants to address a particular safety issue in-depth. Organizations or individuals looking to foster patient safety in their communities can take advantage of this campaign by using NPSF tools, resources and informational materials. Organizations can also order individual materials to supplement an existing safety program.
In 2014 Patient Safety Awareness Week will be observed March 2-8. The theme this year is “Navigate Your Health . . . Safely.” Find out more.
