Patients for Patient Safety (PFPS) is a World Health Organisation initiative aimed at improving patient safety in health care.
Our mission is to bring together patients, providers, policy-makers and those effected by harm, who are dedicated to improving health-care safety through collaboration and partnership. To encourage Health Care Providers to acknowledge patients and their families as an untapped resource for information and recognise the patient experience as a learning tool.
Statement from Patients for Patient Safety Ireland for World Patient Safety Day 2021
Patients for Patient Safety Ireland is pleased to observe and celebrate this year’s World Patient Safety Day with the theme of “Safe Maternal and Newborn Care". That is what we should all expect, that our newest citizens and the mums who have carried them have access to safe care.
Patients for Patient Safety Ireland is based on a World Health Organisation initiative that aims to improve patient safety in healthcare, working in collaboration with the health services. We believe that every individual patient experience, from birth to end of life, should have safe care as a core principle.
