Workshop on patient safety
Client: European Parliament
Milieu Ltd supported the Directorate General for Internal Policies of the European Parliament in the organisation of the workshop on 'Patient Safety'.
The aim of the workshop was to discuss the Commission’s report on the basis of Member States' reports on the implementation of the Council Recommendation on patient safety (2009/C 151/01); on health care-associated infections; on the challenges in implementing a true European system for patient safety and on the future of patient safety in Europe.
The workshop was hosted by Mr Oreste ROSSI (MEP), ENVI Committee Rapporteur for the INI report, and co-chaired by Ms Michèle RIVASI (MEP), Ms Renate SOMMER (MEP) and Ms Rebecca TAYLOR (MEP).
Milieu Ltd provided logistical support to the European Parliament for the organisation of the workshop. Milieu staff identified and contacted experts with extensive experience in the area of healthcare associated issues and patient safety as well as arranged their participation. Milieu staff drafted the press releases for the workshop (both before and after the workshop) and the final workshop report.
The workshop discussion informed the European Parliament’s own-initiative report on the Commission’s report on the implementation of the Council Recommendation on patient safety (2009/C 151/01).
