Patient Safety Education Program

Since 2012, Xian Janssen has worked with the Chinese Hospital Association (CHA) to conduct the Patient Safety Education Project, which highlights the importance of patient safety education to improve healthcare quality and uses WHO’s Patient Safety Curriculum Guide to provide extended and in-depth trainings for hospital management teams. By doing so, the program aims to share international experience on healthcare quality and safety management. It also aims to enhance the capacity of healthcare services by raising patient safety awareness, meeting the goals set by the National Health and Family Planning Commission on patient safety and improving healthcare quality.
