IHI Patient Safety Congress
IHI Patient Safety Congress
Safety Ready, Safer Together
The must-attend event for those who continue to shape smarter, safer care for patients wherever it’s provided – from the hospital and outpatient settings to the home.
Foundational Areas of Focus
The four subject matter areas below represent the foundational areas of Safer Together: A National Action Plan to Advance Safety and are used to provide a framework for the tracks that are included in the 2024 program:
- Culture, Leadership, and Governance: The imperative for leaders, governance bodies, and policymakers to demonstrate and foster our deeply held professional commitments to safe, reliable, and equitable care 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 and equitable partnership in all aspects of care design, delivery, and operations.
- Workforce Safety and Well-Being: 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 physical and psychological harm and inequities and promote wellbeing to both patients and the workforce.
- Learning System: Establishing networked and continuous learning; forging learning systems within and across health care organizations at the local, regional, and national levels to encourage widespread sharing, learning, and improvement of safe, reliable, and equitable care.
Additionally, with the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, IHI is pleased to offer sessions that are focused on improving excellence in medical diagnosis. If you are submitting for a concurrent sessions or Immersion Workshop that focuses on Diagnostic Excellence, please be sure to select this on your submission page.
In support of improving patient care, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the health care team.

Important instructions for group registration:
- A group can register at any time before the start of the Patient Safety Congress. Before you register your group, please be sure that everyone has an IHI account. If they do not, please have them create an account here.
- To register a group, log into an attendees IHI account and click the “Register Now” button towards the top of this page and register the person that that account belongs to. Once that first registration has been completed, the system will ask you if you would like to add another registration. Select “register another” and register the next attendee. Continue this process until everyone has been registered.
- Please note that a group registration needs to be done all at once. You cannot go back and add people to an existing registration.
- An alternative would be to have all your attendees register individually and have them select the “invoice” option at the payment section of their registration, to avoid submitting payment. Once everyone has registered, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with all the names in the group and we will combine them into one invoice with the group pricing.
