Global Patient Safety Summit
A GPS for Leaders
This web page will address the follow-up on our Global Patient Safety Summit, which was to be held in Nice, France. We will continually update our next steps regarding our work with the international collaborators.


Nice, France, GPS Summit Update


We were deeply disappointed by the need to cancel the Global Patient Safety Summit. This decision was made after the majority of GPS Summit speakers from the U.S., the U.K. and other Northern European countries were unable to reach Nice, France, due to air and other travel disruptions.

As an alternative, the content modules of the GPS Summit will be delivered in a series of 90-minute, issue-specific webcasts that will be scheduled in the coming months. Further information and log-in instructions will be provided once these webcasts are scheduled.

Global healthcare leaders are invited to view, online via streaming video, an important new Discovery Channel documentary on patient safety that premiered in Nice, France, on April 22nd. This inspirational documentary, narrated by actor Dennis Quaid and made possible by a grant from CareFusion, AORN, and TMIT, is called:
