Patient Safety Summit – just two weeks away!



The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation’s 11th Annual Patient Safety Summit is just two weeks away on August 13-14 at the Arlington Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Home Run for Safety.”

Keynote speakers will include Sorrel King, the creator of the Josie King Foundation; Dave Dravecky, former pitcher for the San Francisco Giants and cancer survivor; and Lieutenant General (Dr.) Paul K. Carlton, Jr., the 17th Surgeon General of the U.S. Air Force.

Sessions on August 13 are from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. and on August 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Poster abstracts will be displayed and networking opportunities will be available throughout the two-day event.

The Patient Safety Summit serves as an opportunity for hospital employees to discuss past errors and to make strategic plans on how to keep them from happening again. More than 350 attendees are expected to participate, including healthcare employees, nurses, patient safety advocates, chief nursing officers and hospital executives.
