Uncover the impact and value of media stories exposing patient safety incidents. 

Shaun Lintern, Health Correspondent at The Independent, will join Jonathan Hazan, Chair of Patient Safety Learning and Moira Durbridge, President of the Patient Safety Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, for this interactive webinar which will explain how the media work to promote patient safety stories, illustrate how media stories can be a spur to local patient safety improvements and show how the media can be a powerful medium for communicating patient safety.

Pose your questions directly to our guest and prominent member of the national press, Mr Lintern, as he outlines what makes a patient safety incident news-worthy.

We will also offer case studies of high-profile patient safety incidents that have received press coverage, and demonstrate their impact on the staff, patients and families involved
