World Patient Safety Day – Sept. 17, 2020

Aug 25, 2021

World Patient Safety Day was created to increase public awareness and engagement, enhance global understanding, and spur global solidarity and action to promote patient safety. This year’s World Patient Safety Day is “Safe maternal and newborn care.” This theme is dedicated to the need to prioritize and address safety in maternal and newborn care, particularly around the time of childbirth, when most harm occurs. This is especially important in the context of disruption of health services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has further compounded the situation. Visit the WHO website to find downloadable materials so your workplace can participate and help spread awareness! https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-patient-safety-day/2021
