NeuroSafe 2019

2019 NeuroSafe Symposium - Time Out to Reflect on Quality & Safety in Neurosurgery. August 8-9, 2019

Welcome to NeuroSafe 2019

We are constantly challenged to provide high-quality, safe care in complex healthcare systems and within the context of the “triple aim” — improving the patient experience, improving population health, and reducing healthcare's per capita cost.

The fourth annual NeuroSafe symposium – NeuroSafe 2019 – provides a unique opportunity to take time out to reflect on what all that means for our neurosurgical practices. The symposium enables conversations among experts and attendees about practical, achievable ways to improve the safety and quality of a neurosurgical practice within the context of the triple aim.

Come join those conversations, August 8-9, 2019, at the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus in Minneapolis. The two days will give you access to national experts who will share – via interactive, case-based reviews and discussions – their own strategies, studies and ideas about improving neurosurgical quality and safety.
