Patient Safety Learning's second annual conference and awards

On 2 October 2019, we held our second annual conference at The King's Fund in London.

The conference, based on our six foundations of safer care (as detailed in A Blueprint for Action), was a great success. We had an impressive line-up of speakers, from leaders in patient safety to patients themselves. Having a variety of speakers and delegates was very important to us, not only because patient safety is a system-wide issue but also because patient engagement is one of our six foundations and absolutely vital in improving care.

We received wonderful feedback from many who attended. We're already looking ahead to our conference in 2020, incorporating the feedback we've received so that it's even better than what's come before.

If you weren't able to make our conference this year, we would love for you to join us in 2020. We'll let you know the details once we have more information to give you, but in the meantime please enjoy these photos from our 2019 conference, including those of our award winners.

If you're interested in applying for a Patient Safety Award in 2020, please see our awards page for more information.
