The Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Lecture 2011: New Fontiers in Patient Safety – Institute of Medicine – 5 October 2011

“Through the generosity of the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Foundation, a lecture series was established in 1988 at the Institute of Medicine to bring to greater attention some of the critical health policy issues facing our country today. Each year a topic of special policy relevance is selected and addressed during an evening lecture.

More than 10 years ago, the IOM released its landmark report on patient safety, To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System. The 2011 Rosenthal Lecture featured the Honorable Kathleen G. Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, who presented the new steps that HHS is taking to improve patient safety. A panel of leaders in patient safety followed to discuss patient safety progress and opportunities. The panel members were: Donald M. Berwick, Administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; Carolyn M. Clancy, Director, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; Brent C. James, Chief Quality Officer, Intermountain Healthcare; and Paul H. O’Neill, Former Secretary, U.S. Department of the Treasury.”
