Patient Safety and Quality Masterclass

What is it?

The Patient Safety and Quality Masterclass is an advanced scientific workshop dedicated to learning principles and practice of patient safety, clinical risk management and quality of care. 

It is an intensive 2 ½ day workshop built on the principle of maximizing interaction between attendees through small group learning and sessions that require participation. While we are generally able to cover a wide variety of safety and quality-related topics, we have a diverse faculty selection that enables participants to focus on particular interest topics in their clinical settings and target their needs to maximize their learning benefit.

Target audience

The course is open to ESAIC members and non-members who speak and write English fluently. This course is aimed at anaesthesiologists, nurse anaesthetists, other perioperative clinicians/staff and hospital administrators that have some experience in patient safety and are clearly motivated in their choice of being patient safety and quality champions in their departments. The focus is on perioperative patient safety.
