Agenda

​​​IHI Patient Safety Congress 2021 tracks were designed around the National Action Plan to Advance Patient Safety, which centers on four foundational and interdependent areas prioritized as essential to creating total systems safety. ​

This year's four tracks included:

  • Culture, Leadership, and Governance: The imperative for leaders, governance bodies, and policymakers to demonstrate and foster our deeply held professional commitments to safety as a core value and promote the development of cultures of safety.
  • Patient and Family Engagement: The spread of authentic patient and family engagement; the practice of co-designing and co-producing care with patients, families, and care partners to ensure their meaningful partnership in all aspects of care design, delivery, and operations.
  • Workforce Safety: Ensuring the safety and resiliency of the organization and the workforce is a necessary precondition to advancing patient safety; we need to work toward a unified, total systems-based perspective and approach to eliminate harm to both patients and the workforce.
  • Learning System: Initiate and develop systems that foster both intra- and inter-organizational learning and training on safety, develop shared goals for safety across the continuum of care, accelerate and develop the best possible safety learning networks, and expediate industry-wide coordination, collaboration, and cooperation on safety.
All times listed below are in Eastern Time (ET). IHI reserves the right to amend the agenda if necessary.​

The IHI Patient Safety Congress is open to journalists with valid press credentials that have been reviewed and approved by the IHI communications team.
