Safety Ready, Safer Together

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Patient Safety Congress brings together people who are passionate about ensuring safe, equitable care for all.
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.

We welcome submissions from across the entire continuum of care that reflect a range of patient populations, as well as emerging safety priorities such as inequities, climate change and other crises, and supply chain issues. Please select the foundational area that most closely aligns with your proposal. Within each foundational area, you will have the opportunity to note subtopic areas that best align with your content that will help us create a diverse and appealing program that represents the varied interests of our attendees.

Based upon session submissions, the final IHI Congress program will be crafted into tracks that best meet the needs of Congress attendees according to the strongest submitted content. Your submission may be considered for an alternate foundational area or a subtopic if the IHI Congress Planning Committee feels your submission is best aligned with another category.

  • 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. 

Continuing Education

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.
