The 8th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit is co-convened with the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), and the European Society of Anesthesiology (ESA) and will bring together all stakeholder groups to discuss novel solutions to the leading challenges facing hospitals today.

Patient safety is a public health priority and a globally shared challenge, thus international cooperation is crucial. One of the most significant advances in this area to date is the recent adoption of the resolution "Global Action on Patient Safety" by the World Health Assembly, which enabled the first-ever World Patient Safety Day this past September. In recent years, the Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety has become one of the central platforms for improving patient safety worldwide. It represents an effective tool for facilitating collaboration between countries and stakeholders alike.
ISQua Institutional Members, FSP Chile (Foundation for Patient Safety), are holding their 5th International Congress on Patient Safety from 3rd to 5th June 2020.
