The 5th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit was the best yet! Over 300 international leaders from hospitals, medical and information technology company executives, members of the patient advocacy community, public policy makers and government officials gathered to discuss solutions to the leading challenges that cause preventable patient death in hospitals.
For the first time ever, the Patient Safety Movement held a Pre-Session on CANDOR, the Communication and Optimal Resolution Program.
The 2017 Summit featured keynote addresses from Former Vice President Joe Biden, Former President Bill Clinton. Plenary speakers spoke and panels convened on timely patient safety topics. Patient safety experts, healthcare luminaries, members of the press, elected officials and patient advocates were interspersed across the program.
Every year the Patient Safety Movement Foundation identifies the most influential advocates in patient safety and honors them with the Humanitarian Award at the annual World Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit. This award recognizes leaders who have made significant progress in eliminating preventable patient deaths so that we can reach our shared goal of zero by 2020. Congratulations to the 2016 winners!
