2013 Congress: Patient Safety Solution Evolution

 
The 15th Annual NPSF Patient Safety Congress was held May 8-10, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana.

  • Patient Safety Basics: Culture and Measurement

The Congress featured four keynote sessions:

 
  • Bedside Manners. Suzanne Gordon led this unique, interactive program, designed to illustrate the importance and experience of team intelligence.
  • Through the Eyes of the Workforce: Creating Joy, Meaning, and Safer Health Care – The Evolving Agenda of the Lucian Leape Institute
  • Experience Matters: Executing on Quality and Safety through the Eyes of the Patient. Bridget Duffy, MD, who created one of the nation’s first hospitalist programs and served as the chief experience officer (CXO) of Cleveland Clinic, the first senior position of its kind in a health care system.
  • Why We Make Mistakes: How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds, and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average. Joe Hallinan, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of the book Why We Make Mistakes.
 

Twenty-five breakout sessions were held in six tracks:

  • Health Information Technology: Building Solutions for Patient Safety
  • Risk Prevention: A Patient Safety Imperative
  • Employee Engagement: Bringing the Joy and Meaning Back to Work
  • Transformational Models for Safe Health Care Delivery
