What does the summit mean for the healthcare sector?
“This is our first in-person Summit after the pandemic and we have created an unforgettable event with incredible speakers and panellists. The pandemic highlighted the safety gaps in our healthcare systems, and it not only affected our patients but also our healthcare workers,” said Dr. Michael Ramsay, Chief Executive Officer at Patient Safety Movement Foundation.
“Over the years, we have seen hospital systems that implement Actionable Evidence-Based Practices report zero deaths in areas such as hospital-acquired infections. ZERO patient harm is possible, but it won’t happen without your full commitment and participation.”
“In my over 15 years in systems engineering and patient safety, the World Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit is the first event that brings all stakeholders in healthcare under one roof,” said Dr. Sanaz Massoumi, COO at Patient Safety Movement Foundation.
“We develop solutions in collaboration with clinicians, patient safety advocates, policy makers and hospital administrators. Together, we can learn from the past, focus on implementing Actionable Evidence-Based Practices today, and ensure a future with zero preventable harm.”
The summit is open to anyone interested in actively planning solutions relating to the leading patient safety challenges that cause preventable patient harm and death in hospitals and healthcare institutions around the world. Visit the website to learn more about the summit.
