On 17th September, the global patient safety community will once again come together for the annual World Patient Safety Day (WPSD). Globally, a series of events will take place to advocate for safe and respectful childbirth.
In recognition of this important topic, the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC), part of the Institute of Global Health Innovation at Imperial College London, are hosting a virtual event.
The event will address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on staff burnout and resilience, and the safety impacts for patients and families, through a spotlight on their impact on maternal and newborn care in support of the World Health Organization’s objectives for WPSD 2021.
The event will include a live panel discussion, featuring UK and international safety leaders and experts in maternal and newborn care.
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.
Programme to be confirmed shortly.
