What we’ve heard since the launch Quotes: – Thank you very much for this innovative platform of learning. Patient Safety Alerts is a wonderful opportunity to learn from others and share our experiences. – Yemen – Thank you such a great website - thanks for the remarkable idea and the successful outcome. Your work will benefit many around the world. Wishing you continued success! – Canada – CPSI has done a fantastic job of scoping this important project and taking up a core challenge that WHO posed to the world when it first pushed the issue of patient safety for all WHO member states back in We believe that this portal offers incredible potential for improving access to and knowledge of patient safety alerts and alert networks out there and we will work with CPSI to link Global Patient Safety Alerts to WHO's Patient Safety Global Reporting and Learning Community of Practice.
