Patient Safety Workshops
Patient safety training and education of health-care professionals have not kept pace with advances in patient safety, nor with workforce requirements. The introduction of patient safety in health professional training is therefore necessary and timely. In 2012, the World Health Organization initiated implementation of patient safety workshops based on the topics of the Patient Safety Curriculum Guide. The workshops lay the foundations for building knowledge and skills in essential patient safety principles and concepts.
