The Patient Safety Academy, now in it's 5th year, brings together individuals engaged in healthcare quality and patient safety activities. An interdisciplinary day-long event, the Academy provides thought-provoking sessions, skill building workshops,and the sharing of best practices in patient safety. Nationally recognized leaders will present the opening and closing plenary sessions, with workshops led by local experts on topics including pharmacy and medication management, patient engagement, health information technology, prevention of health associated infections, and much more! Colleagues will be able to network and share best practices through interactive sessions and best practice displays. The Academy will also honor Maine's leaders in patient safety through the Rising Tide awards. More information, including links to registration, display submissions and award nomination forms, will be available soon.
