This document is an evaluation of the activities which took place during Patient Safety Week 2014.
Patient Safety Week was an awareness raising week run by the Health Quality & Safety Commission as part of the Open for better care campaign.
The purpose of the week, which ran from 3 to 9 November 2014, was to:
- create focus, energy, momentum and raise awareness of the importance of patient safety through a concentrated burst of activities over a week
- distribute and share the resources available and celebrate and share positive and successful initiatives so more New Zealanders can learn about and become enthusiasts for patient safety
- establish and strengthen relationships with organisations and networks interested in promoting consumers as partners in care to increase knowledge and skills
- create a community of patient safety week supporters and champions for future years.
