Call for Proposals

​​​Workshop and poster proposals are now closed!

People attend the IHI Patient Safety Congress for a variety of reasons but every year, workshops provide some of the most informative and memorable moments for its attendees.

Presenting a poster at the IHI Patient Safety Congress is an excellent opportunity to highlight the work that you and your organization are doing to improve the safety of patients and those who provide care. 

IHI Congress attendees are especially interested in new approaches that demonstrate systemic improvement in the reduction of harm at various levels – within a team, department, facility, or organization-wide.​​

Track Themes

  • 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: Establishing networked and continuous learning; forging learning systems within and across health care organizations at all levels.
