Deadline for abstracts fast approaching

The conference provides an ideal opportunity to meet up with others working in the patient safety field in Scotland, the rest of the UK and Europe and to showcase ongoing or completed work, so do consider submitting an abstract or just coming along to participate in two days of lively discussion and debate in a historic venue a stone’s throw from the beach!

We are pleased to announce that in addition to the parallel sessions to be chosen from submitted abstracts, this year will feature several invited parallel speakers. These will include a welcome return visit from Dr Paul Bowie and Dr Diane Kelly from NES, a session by Jane Jones of The Health Foundation exploring the Foundation’s patient safety work and (in response to requests) a session looking at patient involvement in patient safety led by Professor Ian Watt and Dr Yvonne Birks from the University of York.

We look forward to receiving your abstracts and to seeing you in St Andrews in June!

Kind regards
