Join us for the 13th edition of the annual patient safety students and trainees day. This meeting brings together students and trainees to show their work promoting patient safety within their organisations with prizes for the best poster and oral presentation. Speakers and interactive workshops aim to inspire and develop new and existing ideas around patient safety in an engaging and dynamic way. With all specialities welcome, it provides an opportunity for cross-speciality learning and networking. 

By engaging with keynote speakers, attending workshops and viewing posters you should develop your understanding of current topics in patient safety and take away key tools to improve your audit or QI practice.
