ISLAMABAD - World Patient Safety Day will be marked on September 17(Saturday) across the globe to raise awareness and drive worldwide intervention for the safety of patients. The observance inspires countries across the globe to prioritize patient safety in the healthcare system. The most basic definition of patient safety is putting an end to avoidable errors and negative practices suffered by patients within healthcare settings. Alongside the progress made in healthcare systems over the years, it has also become more complex with new technology, treatments, and medicines being introduced. Patient safety highlights the importance of preventing or reducing the risks, errors, and avoidable harm suffered by healthcare patients. World Patient Safety Day is among the 11 global health campaigns sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO).
