Speaker: Maryland Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford, Chair, Maryland Heroin and Opioid Emergency Task Force; Peter Pronovost, Director, Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality; Senior Vice President, Patient Safety and Quality, Johns Hopkins Medicine

But what does stewardship mean in the context of a hospital or health system? Given the infancy of stewardship programs, we need to better identify and spread best practices.
