Mark your calendar for April 7, 2016 to join us in St. Louis, Missouri, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Convention Center!

DMarx-8-2011-2hThe Center for Patient Safety is proud to announce David Marx, leader of Outcome Engenuity, as our 2016 Annual Patient Safety Conference keynote speaker.  As the “father of Just Culture”, David’s concepts have had steady involvement in patient safety over the last decade.  Often, adverse events are the result of bad processes – not bad people.  The strongest healthcare organizations have a culture that supports open communication.  Staff can confidently talk about adverse events and the stage is set to learn why and how the mistakes happen.  This is the only way we can work towards improvements in patient safety.Daves-Subs-book

In addition, every attendee will receive a copy of David’s latest book: “Dave’s Subs, A novel story about workplace accountability”.   We look forward to seeing you there!

Stay tuned for more information!
