Eliminating Serious Patient Safety Events in Surgical and Procedural Areas:
A Statewide Conference and Call to Action for California Hospitals

May 14-15, 2015
Double Tree Hotel
2001 Point West Way
Sacramento, CA 95815

This state-of-the-art conference will share new data insights from California’s adverse event reporting system, demonstrate proven strategies to reduce the occurrence of serious patient safety events that occur in surgical and procedural areas (such as retained surgical items), and offer participants the opportunity to weigh in on recommendations for hospitals statewide and for regulators at the California Department of Public Health. It is designed for executive-level hospital administrators, clinicians  and administrators working in surgical and other procedural areas, and quality improvement professionals.  Additional details, a preliminary agenda, and a registration link will be provided here in early 2015.

AMA Category 1 CME credits will be available. Travel scholarships for individuals from California hospitals who demonstrate financial need are available.
