The 72nd World Health Assembly established
17 September 2019 as the inaugural
World Patient Safety Day.
On the very first World Patient Safety Day, WHO is prioritizing patient safety as a global health priority and urging patients, healthcare workers, policy makers and health care industry to “Speak up for Patient Safety!”.
Cities around the world will light up monuments in orange color to show their commitment to safety of patients on 17 September. These include the Jet d’Eau in Geneva, the Pyramids in Cairo, the Kuala Lumpur Tower, The Royal Opera House in Muscat, and the Zakim bridge in Boston among others.
World Health Organization calls for urgent action to reduce patient harm in healthcare.
Improved patient safety, by way of better more realistic clinical training, has always been and will continue to be the ultimate goal of ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim.
It’s an honor to be recognized worldwide as a 2018-2019 Patient Safety Advocate by Medical Training Magazine in their Patient Safety Advocacy issue for our unique wearable training products, work with live people, and focus on the influence of human factors.
Everyday is Patient Safety day for our Team.
