Danish Society for Patient Safety (PS!) is an independent organization working to improve patient safety across Danish healthcare.
PS! support and help the Danish healthcare system to accelerate improvements in patient safety. This is done by producing and disseminating knowledge, implementing methods and building capacity that can better support patient safety.
PS! works in collaboration with a number of relevant organisations to achieve this goal. Our board is made up of representative organisations for patient and carers, healthcare staff, pharmacies, the medical industry as well as local and regional governments. As such, we form a strong and unique organizational position in the work to improve safety in healthcare.
With partners, domestic and international, we have been a part of implementing a wide range of quality improvement projects in hospitals and primary care, as well as striving to put patient safety, improvement methods and person-centeredness on political agendas. We provide advice to legislators and stakeholders, arrange training programs and conferences, suggest standards for safe operation, create consensus and initiate projects.
PS! was established in 2001 and today consists of roughly 20 employees. We are funded by support from the Danish regions, Local Government Denmark, project grants and to a lesser extent income from membership organizations, individuals, and companies.
