Each quarter, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation hosts a free webinar on a variety of central patient safety topics aligned with our Actionable Patient Safety Solutions (APSS). Join us for a virtual workshop session to learn more about existing, high-impact solutions, which address significant patient safety challenges and discover the latest research and findings from our featured expert presenters.


In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by MedStar Health and the Patient Safety Network. MedStar Health is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
