Patient Safety Day: In everybody’s interest

Today, September 17, is World Patient Safety Day and consumers and those who work to prevent infection are calling for all Australians to recognise the vital part we can all play in uniting to halt COVID-19.

The Consumers Health Forum of Australia and the Australasian College of Infection Prevention and Control are joining to observe World Patient Safety Day to champion the need for continued effort to combat COVID-19.

Australians to a large extent can be thankful that a combination of devoted work by clinicians including ACIPC members, and health staff, and a sensible response by most people has so far kept the spread of COVID within manageable levels.
