About the conference

“All In. Safer Together.” is the 10th statewide conference hosted by the Minnesota Alliance for Patient Safety (MAPS) since 2002. Our 10th Biennial Conference will provide valuable information to inspire new ideas to improve safety across all settings of care. Sessions will highlight reasons why and ways in which all stakeholders need to work together to make care safer. This includes providers, leaders, patients/residents/families, regulators, and other community organizations. 

There are 6 general sessions on Thursday, spanning a range of emerging patient safety topics. Friday will feature two general sessions along with 9 breakout sessions (you'll chose three) designed to dive deeper into challenging safety topics that will require multiple stakeholders and communities to come together to improve. 

Topics to include:

  • Learning from the safety journeys of other industries
  • Serving all populations for improved safety including those with mental illness and chemical dependency, refugees and New Americans, and working towards age-friendly health systems.
  • Improving safety strategies across care transitions, telehealth, and containment for infectious diseases.
  • Empowering our teams and health professionals to safely care for others by exploring prevention of drug diversion, burnout, and violence in the workplace
  • Better understanding how to engage our patients, families, and residents/tenants in safety
  • Newest knowledge and research in the financial and human cost of medical errors
