Dubai, United Arab Emirates: One of the Middle East’s leading health events, the Patient Safety Congress, returns to its pre-pandemic format this year, bringing together top thought leaders in healthcare from September 29 to October 1 at Le Meridien Dubai Hotel and Conference Centre.
With the aim of changing the face of patient care, the conference is back with a robust list of products and exhibitors that will bring exceptional innovations to the table at the 2022 edition of Patient Safety.
Key participants and sponsors include global healthcare providers such as GAMA Healthcare, Becton Dickinson, Medcare Group of Hospitals, Malaffi, Kiwi Medical Supplies, Al Fahim Supplies, and Bin Ali Medical Supplies.
With lectures, workshops, networking, and displays, the event, in its 18th edition, showcases the people and products taking healthcare into the future, addressing critical challenges across the world.
As healthcare remains a global challenge, affected by dire humanitarian crises such as the pandemic, the event is an opportunity for thought leaders across the board to discuss ways of making better, safer healthcare, more accessible all around the world.
“Never before has access to healthcare affected so many people and these kinds of events, bringing together key actors in the sector from decision makers to caregivers, is critical for us to continue working to bring better healthcare to all,” said Tom Coleman, Exhibition Director, Informa Markets. “Whether we are speaking to hospital workers or aid workers out in the midst of humanitarian crises, the issues we are addressing such as patient safety and infection control, remain pivotal, whatever and wherever.”
Appealing to professionals across the sector, from C-Suite to nursing, hospital groups to technology providers, the event is set to be its biggest ever, offering brands the chance to showcase their products and create networking opportunities with fellow professionals from around the world.
Visitors can enjoy industry talks by 110 industry movers and shakers such as Dr. Christine Denis, President of the World Federation for Hospital Sterilisation Sciences (WFHSS); Dr. Jameela Al Salman, Chairperson of the Antibiotic Stewardship Program at the Ministry of Health in Bahrain; and Dr. Jeffrey Chapman, Chief of Quality and Patient Safety, Institute Chair, Pulmonology, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, to name a few, along with three key conferences across vital industry topics — infection control, patient safety, and CSSD.
The three-day infection control conference will bring experts together to better understand the challenges facing infection control and to discuss the best ways to fight the spread of infections.
The Patient Safety Conference has been specifically curated and designed to address some of the leading issues, such as medication safety, healthcare worker safety and will assist in the training and education of healthcare staff to enhance care around the region and globally.
The CSSD Conference has been formulated to equip delegates with the knowledge of the standards, complexities, and challenges associated with the vital CSSD function in healthcare affecting everything from small clinics to major hospitals, and the comprehensive skills required to deliver a high standard of care and ensure patient safety.
"We are very glad to finally be back conducting scientific events face to face in person as this is the optimum way to boost the best practice forward,” said Dr. Ashraf Elhoufi, Chairman of Infection Control ICU Committee at Dubai Hospital.
Dr. Nehad Al Shirawi, Consultant Intensivist, Al Fujairah Hospital, MOHAP and Chair of the National UAE Committee for Antimicrobial Stewardship, agreed. “We are excited and very enthusiastic to come back together to hopefully achieve the ultimate benefits and goals of learning and clinical excellence,” she said.
