The 5th Annual Summit of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) took place in Dana Point, California, in early February. The mission of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation is ‘Zero Preventable Deaths by 2020’. Key Speakers were Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the USA, and Joe Biden, 47th Vice President of the USA.

This year, the Global Sepsis Alliance underlined its commitment to ‘Zero Preventable Deaths by 2020’ in a speech by Prof. Konrad Reinhart, Chairman of the GSA and the Sepsis Foundation, detailing the past work and future endeavors of the GSA.

Dr. Ron Daniels, CEO of the GSA and Founder and CEO of the UK Sepsis Trust, will speak about the goals and achievements of the UKST. Prof. Konrad Reinhart will also give an update on the resolution on sepsis, which was recently recommended to be adopted by the World Health Assembly in May by the Executive Board of the WHO.
