Patient Safety Week: 5–11 November 2017

This year's Patient Safety Week (PSW) has a focus on medication safety, in line with the World Health Organization’s five-year medication safety challenge. Harm is still occurring because people are taking the wrong medicines, so we’ve produced a campaign with resources to encourage conversations between consumers and health professionals.
