The Patient Safety Movement Foundation is excited to announce that the 6th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit will be organized with the support of the Rt. Hon. Jeremy Hunt MP, the United Kingdom's Secretary of State for Health. This global meeting will bring together hospital leaders, medical and information technology companies, the patient advocacy community, public policy makers and government officials with the purpose of forming solutions that will help reduce preventable patient deaths in hospitals all over the world.
The 2018 Summit will feature keynote addresses from leading political figures and patient safety experts. The program will include plenary sessions with healthcare luminaries, members of the press and patient advocates. Announcements from organizations who have made commitments to reach the Patient Safety Movement Foundation's goal ofZERO preventable deaths by 2020 will also be highlighted.
Request your invitation today! Seating is limited.

Why is Sepsis Unplugged different to other conferences?
Sepsis Unplugged is a conference done a little differently. It leaves attitudes and egos at the door, brings together all healthcare professionals and patient groups as equals, and asks the questions that will shape better sepsis care.
Conferences like this are crucial: we must act decisively to save the thousands of lives sepsis claims every year – more than breast cancer, bowel cancer, prostate cancer and HIV/AIDS combined.
At Sepsis Unplugged, a range of practical workshops, discussion panels and interactive sessions lead the way for a truly novel, inspiring experience.
CPD accreditation for this conference is pending approval.
Abstract submissions are invited on ideas to help prevent sepsis which can be used in the future as case studies and leading light projects to inspire other healthcare professionals around the UK and beyond. Refer to the above menu for further details.
Who should attend?
This unique conference will be of interest to the following healthcare professionals and those working within:
- Acute Medicine
- Emergency Medicine
- Infection Prevention
- Critical Care
- ACCS Trainees
- Nursing staff
We want to reach out and encourage all medical, nursing and allied healthcare professionals to attend. This conference will also be of particular interest to chief executives, managers, patient bodies and charities.
We would be delighted if you could join us in Birmingham in February and TOGETHER we can mend sepsis.

The Pan American Health Organization is pleased to invite you to the webinar “Appropriate Use of Antibiotics in Sepsis: Timely Action that Saves Lives” organized in the framework of the 2017 World Antibiotic Awareness Week. Being the most serious form of infection, sepsis represents a vital indication of the responsible use of effective antimicrobials for human health and in the absence of appropriate and timely clinical management it would be almost universally fatal.
It aims at increasing awareness and highlighting the importance on rapid administration of appropriate antibiotics in order to reduce deaths from sepsis in the Americas. Experts and a sepsis survivor will be presenting on the vital experience of surviving this condition as well as on the challenges for managing sepsis in Latin America and the Caribbean. Presenters will highlight on access and timely use of appropriate antibiotics, including resistance patterns.
