“You have dreamed about it, PaSQ did it!“
We are pleased to inform you that Good Practices have become public on January 21st 2014. Now they can be easily accessed on the PaSQ Home page  through SEARCH PRACTICES → button.


The PaSQ public database contains 343 Good Practices.This total is composed of 208 Patient Safety Practices (PSPs) gathered at the clinical level via the Work Package 4 online PSPs questionnaire, 100 Good Organisational Practices (GOPs) collected at the system level via the Work Package 6 online GOPs questionnaire, and 35 Good Practices collected through the Literature Review.

At present, the 5 most viewed Good Practices are:

1.   Reporting and Learning System for Patient Safety (SiNASP) from Spain, GOP No. 140-729

2.   National Disease Management Guidelines Programme (NDMG) from Germany, GOP No. 139-481

3.   Differentiation of Clear Solutions in Surgery from France, PSP No. 723

4.   Incident Reporting System and Management of Incidents from Spain, PSP No. 335

5.   Training Plan Patient Safety Culture from Spain, PSP No. 224




Based on the success of the first round, the second round of data collection on Good Practices began on February 17th 2014, and will continue through March 14th 2014.
Help us enrich the PaSQ database, and share your Good Practices at the clinical or the system level by completing an online survey in English:

  • Patient Safety Practices Exchange Survey – WP4, and
  • Good Organisational Practices Exchange Survey – WP6 (Part3: GOP collection).
Related documents like the glossary and frameworks, survey instructions, printable and translated versions of the questionnaires are available on the right side of the PaSQ Questionnaire website.The organisation of the second round is similar to the first: once gathered, all new Good Practices will be reviewed. If the new Good Practices meet the PaSQ quality criteria, they will be rendered to public around September 2014.

To access the online survey, please contact your PaSQ National Contact Point (PaSQ NCP) or AQAH at technical.
