Welcome to the home of Patient Safety Week 2011. Please keep checking this page regularly as we will be updating it with new activites, resources and events for Patient Safety Week.
Our theme for this year is 'It starts with me' to recognise the role each and everyone of us all play, and the difference we can make to safer care.
To receive emails updates about Patient Safety Week, please register here (don't worry, we will only send you one or two emails a week).
As with previous Patient Safety Weeks we want to encourage individuals and organisations in healthcare to take the opportunity to raise awareness about patient safety and celebrate their achievements.
We have set up an area in our online forum for you to share your plans and ideas for this year, click here to access.
We have collated what you've told us so far here.
Twitter users can also tweet their plans and ideas by using the hashtag #ptsafetyweek – we would love you tweet during the week so that we get it trending! You can also follow us @PtSafety1st and our Director @SuzetteWoodward
For some ideas and inspiration on what to do in your organisation why not take a look at the stories from last year on the 2010 webpage and also last year’s online forum.
During Patient Safety Week we have series of intereactive online WebEx sessions planned, hosted by experts and with an opportunity to share and discuss.
