This highly acclaimed annual event, to be held May 20-22 at the Gaylord National outside Washington, DC, boasts over 35 individual sessions targeting seven core areas essential to patient safety. In addition, insightful and inspiring plenaries are planned, including a town hall meeting with authors of the pivotal Institute of Medicine report "To Err Is Human" and distinguished members of the Lucian Leape Institute. Intensive full-day pre-Congress programs will also be offered, highlighted by a unique executive-level event providing case studies and discussion focused on successfully building a safety framework, setting safety and quality priorities, and ensuring critical physician engagement. Plus, the NPSF Congress provides direct access to a wide array of innovative solutions providers.

"These times demand increased vigilance from us all," explained Diane Pinakiewicz, President of the National Patient Safety Foundation, "and, as adversity threatens, it also sparks creativity and unique problem-solving, a mindset that is at the very heart of this year's Congress."

Widely recognized as the definitive patient safety event each year, the 2009 NPSF Congress will provide the new learnings, practical tools, and innovative solutions essential to keeping patients safe during these challenging times, and will offer unparalleled opportunities for attendees to collaborate with safety experts and influential healthcare leaders.

"Now more than ever, an unwavering focus on patient safety is critical," noted Ms. Pinakiewicz. "The risks are too great to respond otherwise."
