A unique conference, which focuses on improving patient safety and sharing best practice, has been announced by events specialist, Knowlex - in collaboration with The Association for Perioperative Practice (AfPP).
The Patient Safety 2019 conference is relevant to visitors from all areas of the healthcare sector, including: clinical directors; consultant surgeons; theatre leads; and theatre nurses. The event has had input from a number of leading quality and safety experts who will discuss a broad spectrum of topics ranging from leadership, change management and preventing HAIs, to never events and reducing medication errors.
In addition, there will be a progress report on the Patient Safety Incident Management system (PSIMS) which, in April 2018, completed the Alpha phase - and is about to move into the Beta stage of development. In December 2018 NHSI announced a consultation on patient safety as part of the 10 year plan. In the Spring of 2019, NHSI will publish the consultations taken for a new national patient safety strategy that will be part of the NHS Long Term Plan. At the Patient Safety Conference 2019, the plans for local delivery and steps for implementation will be announced.
Patient Safety 2019 takes place at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham, on 11 June 2019 and features talks from experts such as Peter Young, a consultant in anaesthesia and critical care at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, and AfPP CEO, Dawn Stott.
