The Patient Safety Summit: A day to focus on what matters most
For more than a decade, IHA’s Indiana Patient Safety Center and our 170 member hospitals have set our sights on making Indiana the safest place in the world to receive care. The Patient Safety Summit enables us all to step back, assess the work we’ve done and determine the work we still have to do to reach our ambitious goal.
During the Indiana Patient Safety Summit, patient safety and quality leaders come together to learn effective strategies and share best practices that will improve patient safety statewide. From CEOs and CNOs to nursing caregivers, case managers and pharmacists, anyone responsible for patient safety and leading change for improvement will find the Patient Safety Summit an informative and inspiring experience.
Recent national speakers have addressed the summit audience on a wide range of topics, including:
- Sepsis prevention
- The role the individual plays in patient safety
- The importance of psychological safety in creating effective teams
- How the UP Campaign can serve as a tool to change culture
The 2018 Patient Safety Summit will return to the 502 East Event Centre in Carmel, IN on June 5 .
