As healthcare safety programs respond to rapid changes during the COVID-19 pandemic and address health and health care inequitiesMAPS evolved our in-person conference into a 5-part webinar series. This virtual series will highlight emerging ways in which healthcare organizations and congregate care settings develop safety programs and practices that meaningfully engage diverse patients, residents, and families. Topics have been carefully selected to be critically relevant to today’s urgent safety and equity issues.  

Sessions will not be recorded, we look forward to the live conversations we'll have together.
