NQF, HHS Partner on Patient Safety Webinar Series

The National Quality Forum and the Department of Health and Human Services have teamed up to launch a series of patient safety webinars, with the goal of helping organizations nationwide start and sustain changes that will lead to improving healthcare quality and cutting costs, according to an NQF news release.

The patient safety webinar series will start on June 20 with a webinar featuring CMS Administrator Donald Berwick, MD, and Joseph McCannon, senior advisor at the CMS. The introductory session will provide an overview of the initiative and set the context for the eight-part series. Other upcoming webinar topics include care transitions, adverse drug events and surgical site infections.

The webinar series will be available, free of charge, for audio streaming. Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended to ensure real-time participation. All webinars will be recorded, archived and made available on NQF's website after each event.
