Patient Safety has become one of the key priority strategies of the Spanish National Health System (NHS) and is contemplated as such in the Spanish NHS Quality Plan which sets forth the aims pursued and the actions to be taken to promote Patient Safety in collaboration with the Regional Authorities, Scientific Societies, the Patients themselves and Academic and Research institutions. These aims are designed to promote new synergies in the implementation of Patient Safety policies, enabling the Spanish NHS to provide safer and enhanced quality healthcare.
This Conference aims to present international and national experiences in the implementation of best clinical practices in clinical settings, as well as to consider other key components of Patient Safety policies: research, culture, training and the role of patients and professionals.
