The Washington Patient Safety Coalition announced that the 18th Annual Northwest Patient Safety Conference Call for Speakers is now open. This year’s theme is Driving Towards Collaboration and Safety. Presenters are encouraged to think about:
- Collaboration with patients and families: How can providers better engage patients and families as valued parts of the care team?
- Collaboration within organizations and care teams: What can organizations do to break down communication silos and encourage collaboration to strengthen care teams?
- Collaboration within care transitions: How can patients best be cared for with collaborative communication when being transferred between facilities or departments?
- Collaboration with patient advocates: How can patient advocates be brought in as valuable collaborators, helping patients to advocate for themselves?
