Chairman's Welcome Message

Dear Patient Safety professionals,

I welcome you to join the 15th edition of the Patient Safety congress which will engage all stakeholders of patient safety from policy makers to patients to ensure a holistic approach to do no harm’.

Meet your peers and 100+ expert speakers from more than 40 countries to review the latest evidence-based practice to maximise patient safety and patient outcomes, celebrate the best of patient safety at the opening ceremony awards, meet like-minded professionals in the speed networking sessions or find solutions to your challenges at the expert round tables. The congress will feature three days of exclusive content including:

  • The flagship Patient Safety conference to help patient safety professionals benchmark their patient safety programs against current best practice and to develop a customised patient safety strategy based on an organisation’s individual needs and implement quality programs that produce successful, sustainable results for patients and staff.
  • The NEW Workshop on Implementing Quality Tools in Patient Safety to improve service processes in healthcare and make informed decisions for continuous improvement activities.
  • The NEW Nursing Conference to look at the latest best practice through the lens of case studies and success stories, and interactive sessions to learn from the practical experience of world-renowned expert speakers.
  • The Decontamination and Sterilisation conference to explore the practical application and implementation of efficient sterilization and medical aseptic techniques and standards.
  • The Infection Control conference to bring together the best evidence-based strategies, standards, processes and technology implemented to address both HCAIs and infection control in the community at large with a view to minimise the impact of infections in clinical and community settings.

I look forward to welcoming you to Dubai this October for all that the meeting and city has to offer.

Best regards,
