New meeting on monitoring mechanisms for preventing health care related adverse events

WHO/Europe is organizing a "Workshop on monitoring mechanisms for preventing health care related adverse events" which will take place 28-29 November 2011, in Bratislava, Slovakia.

The meeting is a follow up on the multi-country initiative involving Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia started in 2010. It aims to further explore local experience related to preventable harm, and supportive monitoring mechanisms, including the feasibility of integrating reporting systems and to further identify common lines for interventions required to consolidate collaborative patient safety work.
