International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health | World Patient Safety Day 2023—“Engaging Patients for Patient Safety”

World Patient Safety Day (WPSD), held annually on 17 September, aims to raise global awareness about patient safety and calls for solidarity and united action by all countries and international partners to reduce patient harm. Patient safety focuses on preventing and reducing risks, errors, and harm that happen to patients during the provision of health care. This year, WPSD is dedicated to the theme “Engaging patients for patient safety” and the slogan “Elevate the voice of patients!”. 

To further explore the related research on World Patient Safety Day (WPSD), the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH, ISSN: 1660-4601) has gathered open access academic research on the topic of patient safety. We hope to share new scientific knowledge in the field of patient safety with the world on this day.
