The education program will consist of four keynote/ plenary addresses and multiple breakout sessions covering eight tracks: Hospitals, Ambulatory Care and Medical Groups, Technology and System Solutions, Health Plans, Consumers, Employers, Media, and Pharmaceutical and Device Manufacturers. All tracks will focus on what specific RESULTS can be shown by each of these groups in their efforts to improve the safety of patients. Roundtable breakfast discussions and a private breakfast for "CEOs Only" will add to this year's congress education.
This conference builds on the success of the first four NPSF Annenberg conferences on patient safety. These conferences were seminal events in the genesis of the study of patient safety, and marked the beginning of the widespread recognition that health care error must be recognized and reduced. This fifth conference will focus on real world success stories and concrete improvements in patient safety, and how they were achieved.
