WHO designated 17 September to be celebrated as World Patient Safety Day (WPSD) in 2019. The theme for this year’s WPSD is “Health Worker Safety: A Priority for Patient Safety”. As we all agree, there couldn’t be a better time to discuss this topic when health workers, globally, brave the pandemic facing distressing safety risks.
We, at QUASR, spent quite a while brainstorming how we should celebrate this event. After much discussion, we decided the right thing to do would be to gather valuable learnings from leaders in the industry and share them with the community at large. As an advocate of patient safety, we feel this is a way we can do our bit to share actionable insights from across the region so everyone can adopt or tune their processes.
We kickstarted our WPSD 2020 celebrations with a thought-provoking chat with Dr. Juan Lucas Rosas of the FV Hospital, Vietnam. We spoke to leaders in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and more. While we are working to bring all this content to you, we invite you to share your thoughts, suggestions, feedback, or frankly, corrections.
