The Joint Commission Annual Conference Scheduled

July 31, 2007 - The Joint Commission and Joint Commission Resources’ 21st Annual Conference on Quality and Safety will be held Nov. 12-14 in Chicago.

Entitled “Organizational Greatness: Actions for Health Care Excellence,” the conference will highlight leadership strategies for instilling in practitioners a passion for patient safety and quality that extends system wide.

This year’s event has added two simultaneous tracks on quality and safety. The quality track reportedly concentrates on the measurement and continuous improvement aspects of organizational greatness, while the safety track explores evidence-based practice and implementation methodologies that have helped healthcare providers achieve a culture of patient safety.
Scheduled speakers include: Scott Gottlieb, M.D., former deputy commissioner for medical and scientific affairs at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Dennis S. O’Leary, M.D., president, The Joint Commission, and Leonard Marcus, Ph.D., of the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative.
The final day of the conference will examine strategic surveillance systems —S3— that The Joint Commission is launching to drive improvement, as well as a presentation on the role of leaders in improving patient safety. Lastly, Jim Karas, author of the best-selling book The Business Plan for the Body, and contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America, will close the conference with a speech on how to achieve personal and professional success.
