Midyear Planning Meeting

Midyear Planning Meeting

Midyear Planning Meeting


The Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s Midyear Planning Meeting, co-convened with UCI Health, will take place on Monday, September 17th, 2018, at UCI Applied Innovation – also known as “The Cove.”

This full-day working meeting will bring together one hundred leaders in the medical field for an intimate examination and discussion of the six (6) biggest threats to patient safety and preventable harm in the hospital, specifically: healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), medication error, failure to rescue: monitoring for opioid-induced respiratory depression, hand-off communications, and early detection & treatment of sepsis, and venous thromboembolism (VTE).

This year, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation is not planning to take nominations for new challenges. We therefore do not expect new APSS to be developed between the Midyear Planning Meeting and the annual Summit in January in order to place emphasis on the 30 already established action plans developed over the last 6 years.

This will allow an opportunity for participants to provide their experiences and expertise as we propel our mission of 0X2020 forward. We hope to see you there!

Location: UCI Applied Innovation, 5141 California Ave., Irvine, CA 92697

Registration: Complimentary. Space is limited to 100 registrants.
