Dear Colleague,

You are about to participate in the third edition of the ESA Patient Safety and Quality Masterclass, an evolution of previous editions of the Patient Safety Master Course (Stockholm, 2014), the European Patient Safety Courses (2006-2016) and two editions of Patient Safety and Quality Masterclass (Madrid, 2016 and Bologna 2017).

This course is possible thanks to the collaboration between ESA Secretariat, ESA Patient Safety and Quality Committee and the IDEhA Simulation Center in Madrid.

We have worked hard to provide you with a different experience during the face to face time. We will share our experiences in a special environment: the IDEhA Simulation Center of the Alcorcón Hospital. Despite the fact this is not a simulation course, we will use different kinds of simulation. 

For the first time in the ESA Patient Safety Masterclass there will be a full section dedicated to the way patients perceive safety in healthcare. Coby Omvlee will join the MC faculty to testify her experience as a long-term hospitalised patient.

The online part of the course provides some basic and extra reading material. We kindly ask you to check and read the Basic Reading at least as this is a Masterclass that will not stop on the very basics of Patient Safety and Quality.

You can view and download the Programme for the European Patient Safety and Quality Masterclass 2018 here on this site and information on how to get to the venue is also available in the section entitled “Programme and Location”.

The course will be intensive and participative.  Faculty will share their experiences and expect that you share yours. Be prepared for it. 

We really look forward to meeting you in Madrid.
