Upcoming Events

The following is a listing of events that might be of interest to those in Public Health.

Patient Safety Academy @ Abromson Center, USM Portland Campus
Sep 8 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Our theme this year is Safety Culture: It starts in ME, and so we continue to solicit your input and support as together we seek to move the needle on patient safety in Maine. To that end, we are delighted to tell you that our keynote speaker, Dr. Bryan Sexton, is returning to the Patient Safety Academy to share with us in two plenary sessions his research and tools on workforce resilience and the intersection of safety culture and psychological safety. Participants may choose from workshops on topics such as infection prevention, adverse drug events, telehealth, high-reliability organizations, patient engagement, and medication reconciliation led by Maine and regional experts.
