The key stakeholder’s are the one who will act as the mentor of this organisation. They will be involved in the strategical decision about the functionality of the organisation and will act as a central voice for the advancement of the patient safety for the entire healthcare delivery system of the country.
To begin with we need the experts in the field of patient safety and they will be the one to transform the knowledge across the continuum. These leaders are vocal, have deep knowledge on the subject of patient safety, are inspired internally, are visible advocates of the patient safety mission and are deeply committed to IPSO. They are the one who will conduct the workshop, training and orientations for the healthcare worker.
