World Patient Safety Day

World Patient Safety Day, a global public health initiative led by the World Health Organization (WHO), is observed annually on September 17. The primary objective of this day is to heighten awareness about the crucial role of patient safety in healthcare and clinical settings. It advocates for solidarity and collaborative efforts among countries and international partners to minimize harm to patients.

The focus of the day is on preventing and mitigating risks, errors, and harm that patients may experience during the delivery of healthcare services. Research indicates that involving patients as partners in their care results in substantial improvements in safety, patient satisfaction, and overall health outcomes.
