Sponsorships are still available to the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation’s 11th Annual Patient Safety Summit set for August 13-14 at the Arlington Convention Center. This year’s theme is “Home Run for Safety,” with Sorrel King, the creator of the Josie King Foundation, and Dave Dravecky, the former pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, serving as keynote speakers.

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.

Additional speakers will include Lieutenant General Paul Kendall Carlton Jr., 17th Surgeon General of the US Air Force. Poster abstracts will also be displayed 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.
