IDENTITY

The EUPSF is an independent foundation, uniting experts and leading organisations to drive patient safety forward across Europe.

By involving stakeholders such as patient organisations and advocates, healthcare professionals, healthcare providers, academia and life sciences companies in all aspects of our work, including in our governance, we bring together complementary points of view to develop solutions tailored to the complexity of patient safety challenges.

Founded in late 2013, the EUPSF has launched its new strategy and projects in 2020 in close collaboration with the Affiliate Members. 

VISION

Patient safety and quality of care are the top priorities of everyone involved in healthcare and life sciences.

A broad understanding of patient safety: patient safety needs to be approached holistically, considering all the direct and indirect factors that condition excellence in care, and linking it to the equity in care, the resilience and the sustainability of the healthcare systems.

A systemic vision of change: approaches aiming at improving patient safety must embrace the complexity of healthcare systems, the interdependencies between processes, technologies and the human factor, and seek to produce a sustained positive impact.

A shared responsibility: improving patient safety must involve all the stakeholders concerned - including patients, healthcare professionals, leadership- to combine different perspectives and develop solutions tailored to the challenges of patient safety and the growing technicity of care.

MISSION

The EUPSF drives forward the improvement of patient safety and quality of care across Europe.
 

Empowering people: By ensuring European patients, healthcare professionals and providers are informed, trained and empowered in their roles to provide the safest and highest quality care possible.
 

Driving change: Through partnership with leading organisations and experts in the field of patient safety, developing initiatives and policy proposals that genuinely advance patient safety across Europe, making it a tangible reality for all patients.
