Quality & Safety network

Quality and Safety network

These last few years, HOPE and PAQS have had several collaboration opportunities, e.g. HOPE study tours, presentations at the European Parliament and HOPE Agora. Sharing best practices and experience is known to be one of the most effective ways to improve our health systems and more particularly quality of care and patient safety issues.

Considering the absence of concrete actions carried out by the European Union, we see an opportunity to develop a structured network to share quality and safety best practices between European countries.

Supported by HOPE members and their respective networks and by the expertise and resources PAQS holds, the creation of a “Quality and Safety network” at European level will:

  • Create/reinforce links between different organisations working on quality of care and patient safety in Europe;
  • Strengthen the image and visibility of the two organisations;
  • Increase learning opportunities and share best practices;
  • In the long run, facilitate the implementation of common projects in different European countries.

The Quality and Safety network will gather on a quarterly basis by means of educational webinars to present and share best practices across Europe.
