The safety of patient care is a primary objective for all actors in the health field. An annual campaign to raise awareness of the risks and safety of care has been set up by the Ministry of Health since 2011: it is Patient Safety Week.
This year, the Patient Safety Week takes place from 20 to 24 Novembe. Tthe perspective that the Ministry of Health wishes to perpetuate is in 2 items::
• Promoting communication on safety of care
• Promote dialogue between patients, users and health professionals.
DIAGAST, committed to patient safety and well-being on a daily basis, joins this initiative by informing you about the essential role of blood, the blood transfusion process and the resources deployed to ensure optimum safety.
