On 17th September, the global patient safety community is uniting for the second annual World Patient Safety Day. Across the world, a series of events will be taking place in the name of health worker for patient safety.
In recognition of the crucial role that health worker safety plays in patient safety, the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC), part of the Institute of Global Health Innovation at Imperial College London, are honoured to be hosting a virtual event in close collaboration with our colleagues in Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
COVID-19 and the drive for safety and equality – Learning from the front line, will include a primary focus on Black, Asian, and minority ethnic front-line staff, and their perspectives of working during the COVID-19 response. The event will also include a live panel discussion, featuring UK and international safety leaders, and chaired by Dr Mike Durkin.
We are also delighted to have the Former Secretary of State for Health and Social Care and current Chair of the Health and Social Care Select Committee, The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt, joining us as a keynote speaker.
This is a free, public event, and we would be delighted if you would join us to mark this prestigious occasion.
A link to the event and further details will be sent out to registered attendees prior to the event.
