4th Annual Patient Safety Academy

Event Date and Time: 
Friday, September 13, 2013, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

The Patient Safety Academy is returning for its fourth year! Last year, more than 150 health care professionals, representing Maine hospitals, physician practices, pharmacies, long-term care facilities, agencies, organizations, and advocacy groups, participated in the academy's knowledge- and skill-building workshops, including “Little Shop of Errors,” a new workshop that utilized the USM School of Nursing’s Simulation Lab.

The 2013 plenary speaker is Jonathan Welch, MD, MSc, instructor of medicine at Harvard and attending emergency physician at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. He is also the author of the recent Health Affairs article, “As She Lay Dying: How I Fought to Stop Medical Errors from Killing My Mom.”  Hosted by the Muskie School of Public Service.

Open to the public; $50 registration fee/$25 for students
