AHRQ's third annual patient safety conference set for September

The third annual patient safety conference, Making the Health Care System Safer, will be held September 26-28, 2004, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. The conference, which is sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, will feature more than 30 patient safety breakout sessions. The goals of the conference are to:

  • Showcase the products, tools, and findings of AHRQ's patient safety grantees.
  • Illustrate how clinicians, administrators, patients, managers, purchasers, and providers could put these practical and innovative ideas into practice to make the health care system safer.

Participants will learn about practical and innovative ideas for safety improvements across the health care system. The conference will feature 30 breakout panel discussions in the areas of systems improvement, knowledge transfer and dissemination, settings of care, culture and surveys, and reporting. A "product cafe" will include more than 50 exhibits related to patient safety.

Online registration is available. For more information, or to register, go to, select "RSVP for event," and enter the event code MEEHOH5UFA. The registration fee of $125 is payable online by credit card.
