Ambulatory Patient Safety Issues – Opportunities for Improvement

 Session Overview

The National Patient Safety Foundation has been pursuing one mission since its founding in 1997 – to improve the safety of care provided to patients. As a central voice for patient safety, NPSF is committed to a collaborative, inclusive, multistakeholder approach in all that it does. Join us for an engaging session with Tejal Gandhi MD, the President of the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF), who will be speaking about ambulatory patient safety issues and opportunities for improvement. As the recently minted President of NPSF, Dr. Gandhi will also share her vision for NPSF and future focus areas.
Following the session, Dr. Denham will provide an update on the top 10 Hazards of 2013, and present some of the work in progress that TMIT is undertaking to address them.
