Make Safety a Leadership Imperative With a New, Free Webinar

Patient Safety Awareness Week, March 11–17, sponsored by IHI/NPSF is focusing on safety culture and patient engagement. What is your organization doing to celebrate the progress you’ve made and double-down on current safety-improvement efforts?

In honor of Patient Safety Awareness Week, ACHE invites you to attend “Leading for Safety,” a free, three-part webinar series that explores strategies and tactics required to lead a culture of safety within your healthcare organization. Information in the webinar is based on Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success, a guide ACHE jointly developed with IHI/NPSF.

Part I of the webinar series takes place tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13, 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Central. Learn more and register today!

As part of ACHE’s continued commitment to help leaders lead for safety, we also encourage you to log into our new Leading for Safety microsite. We look forward to continuing to support you in your efforts to make safety a leadership imperative.
