The Washington Patient Safety Coalition, Health Quality BC and Oregon Patient Safety Commission present the 20th annual Northwest Patient Safety Conference on October 17-18, 2023. Like last year, it is an entirely virtual event over two half-days.
The theme is “Bringing Patient Safety To Life: What’s worked, what hasn’t, and what to do about it.” The conference will focus on solutions rather than theory. It will address topics including climate change, artificial intelligence and even the creation of a National Patient Safety Board. It will be inspirational, educational, and actionable!
