The International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) announced their support of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF) and their mission to eliminate preventable deaths in hospitals, with a signed cooperation agreement.

With this agreement, ISQua and PSMF agree to work together to further their aims to improve quality and safety in healthcare and eliminate preventable patient deaths. The partnership will provide synergy so that the companies’ missions can be amplified.

ISQua and PSMF will work together to identify common projects in the field of patient safety and promote each other’s activities on an ongoing basis. ISQua and PSMF will hold joint sessions at their respective conferences at ISQua’s 36th International Conference (20th – 23rd October 2019) in Cape Town, South Africa; and PSMF’s 8th Annual World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit in 2020.

David Mayer, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Patient Safety Movement Foundation says, “We feel strong collaborations like this one will help us accelerate the progress we are making towards zero preventable deaths in hospitals and save lives around the world.”
