Strategies for the real world conference follow-up

The Oxford Patient Safety Collaborative was delighted to welcome over 90 delegates to our second annual conference, held at Milton Hill Hotel, near Abingdon, on 21 April 2016.

Feedback from the ‘Patient safety: strategies for the real world’ event indicates that the presentations from our speakers were extremely well received, and the opportunities presented for networking greatly valued.

Dr Paul Durrands, the Chief Operating Officer at the Oxford AHSN, said: “I was really impressed that our team brought an international standard conference to our local partners.

“Two-thirds of the people in the room were new compared to last year, most were clinicians and there was representation from all our partner provider trusts.

“It just felt really good. We have got a substantial programme of work now in patient safety.”
