NPSF Annual Events
As the only conference dedicated solely to patient safety, the NPSF Annual 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 inspiring keynote presentations. 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 18th Annual NPSF Patient Safety Congress will convene May 23–25, 2016, in Scottsdale, Arizona, under the theme The Heart of Safety. See details and register at www.npsf.org/congress.
The NPSF Lucian Leape Institute Forum & Keynote Dinner 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 8th Annual NPSF Lucian Leape Institute Forum & Keynote Dinner was held September 17, 2015, with afternoon featured speaker Dr. Darrell (Skip) Campbell, Jr., and distinguished dinner speaker Dr. Jonathan Perlin.
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 2015 Patient Safety Awareness Week was observed March 8-14 with the theme “United in Safety" and a special focus on patient and family engagement.
Save the date: In 2016, Patient Safety Awareness Week will be observed March 13-19.
