For the last decade, the DFWHC Foundation’s Patient Safety Summit has been a great opportunity for North Texas hospitals to come together and share knowledge on quality and patient care. This year’s event will include 15 speakers and 10 sessions including an Ebola Panel, “DSHS Emergency Management,” “Health Literacy” and “Safety and Security.”

CNE’s, CPHQ, CPHRM, CME’s and ACHE will be provided.
