2012 Congress: Patient Safety 365

The 14th Annual NPSF Patient Safety Congress was held May 23-25, 2012, at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. The year’s theme, Patient Safety 365: Every day, every patient, was designed to drive home the fundamental tenet that patient safety must remain front and center for all of us, in all care setting, and at all times.

The Pre-Congress day included four full- or half-day programs:

  • Leadership Day: Leading Your Organization to Success in Today’s Changing Environment — Sustainability Strategies and Tactics for Improved Safety, Quality, and Financial Outcomes
  • Measurement Boot Camp: Strategies and Tactics for the Real World
  • Patent Safety: Fundamentals for a Fair and Just Culture
  • Patient Safety: Skill Development for a Fair and Just Culture

The Congress featured four plenary sessions:

  • Engaging Patients: A Simulation
  • Was It Really a Miracle on the Hudson?
  • Lucian Leape Institute Town Hall
  • The Patient Safety Culture Proposition: 16 Design Laws to Observe, 5 Skills We Must Develop

Thirty breakout sessions were held in six tracks:

  • Embracing the Team
  • Engineering Workflow and Leveraging Technology
  • Hot Topics
  • Integrating Care Continuum
  • Reforming Health Care / Advancing Quality and Safety
  • Shaping the Culture
