This year, the International Patient Safety Day with theme “If silence is dangerous“, takes place on September 17. The theme was chosen to draw attention to the need of improved communication between different parties that are involved in healthcare.
Safepat partner AIXTRA (Aachen Interdisciplinary Training Centre for Medical Education) and risk & quality management of Uniklinik RWTH Aachen celebrate the International Patient Safety Day on September 18 and 19 in Uniklinik RWTH Aachen. During these days they organize:
· An info stand at the entrance of the Uniklinik from 13.00-16.00
· A short survey to gather information about people’s knowledge on patient safety
· A handover training for medical students
You are invited to bring the stand a visit and share your thoughts on communication in healthcare. For more information about the international patient safety day, visit www.patient-safety-day.org.
