Get Ready for the
Northwest Patient Safety Conference!

Patient safety events look a lot different than they did in years past. While there is hope for a return to in-person conferences, networking events, and live trainings, you don't have to settle for mediocrity in the meantime. We are pleased to announce a lineup of upcoming events that offer flexibility and deliver on content, all without breaking the bank. You don't want to miss these opportunities to be a part of the conversation to improve patient safety and healthcare quality!
WPSC |  18th Annual Northwest Patient Safety Conference

After a long conference hiatus through 2020, we are excited to announce this year's virtual conference, to be held October 6-7, 2021. The shift to virtual gave us the opportunity to develop a regional conference with input from the Oregon Patient Safety Commission (OPSC) and the British Columbia Patient Safety and Quality Council (BCPSQC). Registration for this virtual event will open in June. Stay tuned for the conference program and speaker announcement!

WSPC and HealthAdvocateX 
This Might Hurt Film Screening

A panel discussion will follow the film screening. Registration will open April 1st with a suggested donation.
