The European Union Network for Patient Safety and Quality of Care, PaSQ was officially launched in May 2012 in Roskilde, Denmark in the presence of Ms.Astrid Krag, Danish Minister for Health.
PaSQ Joint Action (JA) is co-funded and supported by the European Commission within the Public Health Programme. It is building on European Union Network for Patient Safety (EUNetPaS)' experience and network to promote the organisation of Patient Safety (PS) and Quality of Care (QC) platforms in all European Member States (EU MS) to improve PS and QC through sharing of information, experiences and the implementation of good practices.
It will run for 36 months (April 1st 2012 - March 31st 2015) and will be performed through seven (7) Work Packages.
The WP4,5,6 Meeting was held in Madrid, Spain beginning October 2012.
The general objective is to contribute to PS and good QC by supporting the implementation of the Council Recommendation on PS through cooperation between EU MS, international organisations and EU stakeholders on issues related to quality of health care, including PS and patient involvement. This will be done by sharing knowledge, experience and good practices with each other, as well as examining their transferability.
