We are pleased to present our 20th annual Northwest Patient Safety Conference this October 17 and 18, “Bringing Patient Safety To Life: What’s worked, what hasn’t, and what to do about it,” presented with Health Quality British Columbia and the Oregon Patient Safety Commission.
Over these two days, we will focus on solutions rather than theory; the National Action Plan to Advance Patient Safety, rather than chasing adverse events better; how to sustain safety programs when leadership changes (no, it doesn’t involve your CV) rather than lamenting about healthcare mergers and acquisitions. We could ignore climate change, but you’ll hear about a tool designed to help health professionals connect with patients and colleagues to respond to the health risks of climate change (no, it doesn’t involve wearing a mask).
We have fantastic faculty including Umair Shah, MD, Secretary of Health, Washington State; Karthik Sivashanker, MD, Vice President for Health Equity, American Medical Association; Patricia McGaffigan, BSN, MS, Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s senior sponsor for the National Steering Committee for Patient Safety; Tejal Gandhi, MD, Chief Safety and Transformation Officer, Press Ganey; and Harjinder Sandhu, PhD, Vice President of Research and Development, Microsoft-Nuance. This will be inspirational, educational, and actionable!
The conference includes 15-hour long sessions, entirely virtual, over two half-days. Live presentations will be recorded and available for a year, so attendees can watch sessions they may have missed at their leisure.
Dates: October 17 & 18, Time: 7:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. Pacific.
