1 Mar 2018 | Patient Safety Week
Patient Safety Week was an awareness-raising week held from 5–11 November 2017.
It was coordinated for the fourth time by the Commission, with the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) joining as partners for the second year. We also received support from PHARMAC, and were fortunate to be well supported by a skilled ideas group that included representatives from most areas of the sector.
This year’s Patient Safety Week theme was medication safety, in line with the World Health Organization’s five-year medication safety challenge.
