Online / Zoom


The Florida Society for Health Care Risk Management and Patient Safety is considered the leading voice in Florida on issues related to Risk Management and Patient Safety across the continuum of care. Our goal is to "advocate" for public policy that benefits patients through a safe, trusted and accessible healthcare system. The goal of our Advocacy Days is to provide our members with an update on current regulatory and legislative issues and an opportunity to "advocate" for public policy through virtual interaction with key members (and staff) of the Florida Legislature.

The first day will focus on Regulatory Advocacy and we will begin the day with a briefing by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) on the topic of Adverse Event Reporting and Annual Risk Management Survey Outcomes. The second day will focus on Legislative Advocacy and will begin with a briefing on proposed bills that have been tracked by the Advocacy Committee followed by a panel presentation and a virtual visit to the Florida Capitol to call on members of the Florida Legislature and Legislative Staff.
