THIS YEAR’S THEME

Times of multiple crises: reasons and ways to keep patient safety on the agenda

In times of crisis such as pandemics, conflict, and migration, patient safety must remain a priority. While securing care is crucial, lowering standards or neglecting improvement is risky.

What they said about last year event?

I had the opportunity to present the National action plan on patient safety in Sweden during the EUPSF Conference. Patient Safety is a foundation within our healthcare system and the EUPSF Conference provided a valuable opportunity to present our national work to a wide European audience.

Bruno ZieglerMedical Officer, Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare

The EUPSF conference was an engaging event that we were very pleased to be part of. Great discussions about how we can advance patient safety as a clinical and industry team! Thank you for involving us.

Kenneth OsbaeckMedtronic

I was delighted to participate in the 2022 EUPSF conference, which highlighted that patient safety is critical in improving patient outcomes. This can only be achieved when patients are involved at every step of their pathway.

Co-organizing the Patient Safety Conference with EUPSF was a great experience. The exceptional collaboration with a skilled and efficient EUPSF team added a new dimension to our annual conference. It successfully bridged the gap between the European and local perspectives, enabling us to address common challenges, share best practices, and foster cooperation.
