Caring about Quality in Care - Spreading Good Practices through Policy, Advocacy and Technology

On Wednesday, May 19th , 2.30 pm 5.00 pm, the Swedish Trade Council and the Embassy of Sweden will host a free seminar on Healthcare Quality at the Swedish Embassy (2900 K Street, NW) in Washington D.C. The seminar is part of a three month long program at the Embassy focusing on “Health and Care” and the purpose is to provide a forum for dialogue between policy makers, researchers, experts and our citizens. NCPIE has been asked to help publicize this seminar which will focus on the issue of improving accuracy and minimizing overuse of services and medication, with the overall goal of improving patient safety and quality of care. This topic is extensively debated in Sweden as well as the United States. Speakers at the event will include interested key organizations as well as new technology providers that can exemplify the role of technology in improving patient safety and quality of care. Please contact Ms. Lunden at to register and for more details about the seminar.
