Regents Park, London

The Royal College of Obstretricians and Gynaecologists

Formerly known as Women’s Health Patient Safety Day this year’s programme organised by the Joint Standing Committee for Patient Safety aims to inspire and engage those working in multidisciplinary teams to continue to improve quality and safety within their own units.

This one-day event is an excellent opportunity to hear from experts in improvement science on the latest research and initiatives, and take home skills and knowledge developed within interactive sessions.

Building on the success of the last event, parallel streams enable delegates to choose the sessions that best meet their own needs and circumstances. A blend of plenaries and workshops will cover a wide range of topics, including the power of measurement to improve quality, transforming incidents into improvement, developing improvement capability within organisations, how to meaningfully engage patients in your work and communication within multidisciplinary teams.

There is also an opportunity to participate in focus groups to discuss implementation of College guidance and how this could be improved.

To show case the range of work the specialty is involved with, delegates are invited to submit an abstract on improvement projects, research or audit they have been involved with. The three best abstracts submitted for the oral category will be presented on the day and prizes are available for the best poster.

Whether you have an idea for a quality improvement project and want some help getting started, or are well under way on your improvement journey, there is something on the programme for you.

This is a multidisciplinary event aimed at obstetricians, gynaecologists, midwives, gynaecology nurses, and clinical, governance and risk leads.
