To Be Held in Conjunction with Inaugural Gala

NORTH ADAMS, Mass., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lucian Leape Institute at the National Patient Safety Foundation today announced that it will hold its first Roundtable meeting and Inaugural Gala February 7-8, 2008 in Boston, Massachusetts. The Institute, established by NPSF in May 2007, is a think tank charged with defining strategic paths and calls to action for the field of patient safety. Its goal is to provide vision and context for the many safety-related efforts already underway within the healthcare system and to call for system-level changes necessary to accelerate the work. Its founding Members include Dr. Leape, Dr. David Lawrence, Julie Morath, Dr. Donald Berwick, Dr. Carolyn Clancy, Jim Conway and Dr. Dennis O'Leary, all of whom are renowned leaders in the patient safety field.

The work of the Institute will be conducted through semi-annual Roundtables on topics critical to the advancement of patient safety. Topic-specific experts will be invited into the process and Roundtable proceedings will call for new thinking and policy direction on the issues being addressed. The Institute's first Roundtable will focus on the development of a report to be issued in the spring entitled Transforming Patient Safety: A Conversation. The final report will be presented at NPSF's annual Congress in May and will outline the work to be done by the Institute in their subsequent Roundtables. "Improving patient safety is the singular goal of the Institute and of NPSF," said Diane C. Pinakiewicz, MBA, NPSF and Institute President, who also noted," The initial Roundtable will set the pace for the critical work that lies ahead."

To celebrate the establishment of the Institute and the beginning of its work, the Institute will host its Inaugural Gala on the evening of February 8, following the conclusion of the first Roundtable. Preceding the Gala, the Founding Members will facilitate five separate
