Health First Europe (HFE) is pleased to inform that the European Union Network for Patient Safety and Quality of Care (PaSQ) Joint Action (JA) has launched a new website.

The PaSQ project was officially launched in May 2012 with the aim of supporting the implementation of the Council Recommendations on Patient Safety by promoting cooperation between Member States, stakeholders and international organizations. Building on the existing permanent network for Patient Safety, this initiative will promote the establishment of platforms in all European Member States. The JA is co-funded by the European Commission and will be performed through seven Work Packages (WP).

Health First Europe (HFE) is actively participating to this initiative as a Collaborating Partner and attended the WP 5 meeting in Madrid at the beginning of the month. HFE members, the European Federation of Nurses (EFN) and the European Union of Private Hospitals (UEHP), are also engaged in the Joint Action as Associated Partners and working on the implementation and monitoring of safe clinical practices as well as participating in other work packages of the Joint Action.
