Patient Safety Movement Meets in Washington DC to Plan 2017 Event
This full-day meeting, co-convened by the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, will consist of two morning sessions and an afternoon session. The meeting will commence with a general session of lectures and discussions led by patient safety experts.
In the afternoon, each of the twelve Actionable Patient Safety Solution (APSS) workgroups will report on their recent revisions and future plans. The day will end with the annual nomination and selection of new patient safety challenges that will be addressed at the 2017 World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit. A networking reception will follow the program so that attendees can connect with one another and share patient safety-related ideas before they go back to their own institutions.
The goal of the meeting is to provide attendees with an opportunity to hear from leading patient safety experts on timely topics, encourage a productive dialogue about proposed updates and revisions to the APSS, and finally, identify patient safety challenges for the 2017 Summit.
