About The Event

7th International Patient Safety Conference 2017

WELCOME TO 7th PATIENT SAFETY CONGRESS
1-2 December 2017, JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar, Mumbai, India

Hospitals are scary places to be in. Volumes of investigations, life saving and life threatening medications, life support devices, complex diseases, delicate interventional procedures and marathon surgeries – an error can be disastrous. Yet research shows that medical errors happen frequently. The International Congress on Patient Safety addresses this concern and is a collaborative effort by all stakeholders to share their experiences in patient safety and contribute with their knowledge, innovations and best practices.

The 7th International Congress on Patient Safety shall focus on the twin areas:

Defining a strategy for patient safety improvement.
Imparting technical knowledge on various patient safety areas.

Benefits Of Participation:

There has been over the past decade a growing awareness regarding harm that is caused to patients vis-a-vis the benefit that accrues from medical treatment. In the nineties various studies on errors and adverse events in health care institutions came into limelight and shocked the medical world into action. The frequency and magnitude of avoidable adverse patient event was not well known until the 1990s when multiple countries reported staggering number of patients harmed and killed by medical errors. Path breaking report by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science, ‘’ To err is Human: Building a Safer Health system’’ gave a wakening call. Followed by this, many studies across the globe led to the emergence of the discipline of Patient Safety’’,

World over the patient safety has evolved into a global movement. Medical errors occur at a rate of 1.7 errors per patient per day in ICUs as indicated in the study in the United States. A million deaths occur worldwide from surgical errors. 1.5 lakh deaths take place form hospital acquired infections as indicated in study carried out in 2005.

History of medicine is replete with both serendipitous discoveries and horrific misadventures and the world today is deeply engaged in combating the latter. A study in the US revealed an estimated death of 2, 20,000 to 4 lakhs per year from medical errors and is the 3rd leading cause of death. Recognizing that health care errors impact 1 in every 10 patients around the world the WHO calls Patient Safety an endemic concern. The Patient Safety issues are all pervasive in the entire patient care process, systems, and sub-systems and across all specialties.

Against this backdrop Apollo Hospitals Group has over the past five years collaborated with International agencies and eminent authorities in the field of Patient Safety, both to learn about newer developments in the field as well as an attempt to help capture data of errors affecting Patient Safety in the Indian context.

The 6th International Congress on Patient Safety was organized at Chennai on 21-22 October, 2016. This congress was organized by Apollo with JCI, ISQua, NABH, RCP, WISH, ISA, CII, FICCI and many others as knowledge partners to spread the benefits of ‘Patient Safety’ throughout the country.

Patient Safety experts across the world would be participating in it to share their knowledge and experience. A well-knit programme covers presentations, panel discussions, poster presentation, patient safety awards and display of the most widely accepted Patient Safety tools.

The doctors of various specialties, Medical Administrators, Nursing leaders, Quality Heads, will be greatly benefited by the information and experience shared by International and National experts and speakers. With the kind of exposure, interactions, networking will certainly makes an impact on participants to adopt best practices and bring in a change in the health care systems. They can become an ambassador of patient safety in the change management mission and can bring in transformation of systems.
