National Patient Safety Congress Abstracts Due Oct. 31st!
The NPSF Congress is taking place May 14-16th 2014 in Orlando, FL! What is the NPSF Congress? “The NPSF Patient Safety Congress is the only global meeting where patient safety is the touch point to every session, every speaker, and every event.
Planned by leaders in the field, the NPSF Patient Safety Congress has a tradition of providing real-world tools, robust resources, and evidence-based solutions to patient safety issues. That’s why it is recognized as the foremost learning and networking event for those committed to advancing the cause of patient safety across the continuum of care.
This program delivers educational breakout sessions led by industry experts, thought-provoking plenary sessions with national thought leaders, and an engaging and interactive Learning & Simulation Center. An optional full day of in-depth Pre-Congress sessions is also offered for those seeking a deep dive into major issues in patient safety.” Learn more by visiting the NPSF Congress Website.
