Patient safety

In its Report (COM(2012) 658) on implementation of Council Recommendation 2009/C 151/01 on patient safety, the Commission finds that: ’On general patient safety, most Member States have embedded patient safety as a priority in public health policies and designated a competent authority responsible for patient safety. Moreover, most countries have encouraged training on patient safety in healthcare settings, though only a few have formally embedded patient safety in education and training programmes for health professionals.’
