Remarks & Themes

 Providing care service is a challenging task. It involves a mix of stakeholders, each with its own role and interest. While the centre is patient care, the need for some form of rules and regulation is obvious to not only safeguard the varying interests but also to harmonize the delivery of care.

Administrators, supervisors and particularly direct care-givers (nurses and the likes) need to be aware of various threats in healthcare delivery.

This workshop intends to provide participants – expectedly direct care-givers - a round idea of what Patient Safety is as a discipline in its own right. It includes looking into the healthcare environment for causes as well as resources for disciplined efforts to safeguard patient safety including the role of ethics and law.
