The 6th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit is organized with the support of the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, the Rt. Hon. Jeremy Hunt MP and is co-convened by the European Society of Anaesthesiology.

The 2018 Summit will bring international hospital leaders, medical and information technology companies, the patient advocacy community, public policy makers and government officials, together to discuss solutions to the leading challenges that cause preventable patient deaths in hospitals across the world.

The Summit will feature keynote addresses from leading political figures and patient safety experts, plenary sessions with healthcare luminaries, members of the press and patient advocates, as well as announcements from organizations who have made their own commitments to reach the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s goal of ZERO preventable deaths by 2020.
