Over the course of the three days, local and international experts will speak on the latest developments in healthcare and healthcare workers' safety, according to a tweet by HMC.
"Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Qatar's healthcare providers have come together as hospitals, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and many other frontline staff, first responders and leaders to urge our residents to protect themselves, their neighbours, and their loved ones amid the worst global crisis in generations," said Dr Moza Hassan Alishaq, PSAW 2021 Organising Committee chairperson and executive director, Clinical Transformation - Corporate Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, in a statement on the HMC website.
"2020 was a year filled with many emotions from a sense of fear, sadness, accomplishment, joy and so much more. And we recognise that 2021 continues to offer challenges. We send our gratitude for your ongoing steadfast efforts to keep patients safe and ensure patient safety is everyone’s responsibility, year round," she continued. "To continuously remind us the importance of patient safety, we will be hosting this year’s Patient Safety Awareness Week, June 10-12, 2021 under the theme 'Together, we are Better, Stronger, Safer: Bringing the care team together for patient safety'.”
Dr Alishaq added, "As healthcare providers, we must lead in educating our staff and public about important patient safety issues. Thank you for your continued participation and partnership as we work together to increase patient safety awareness.
