The Patient Safety Database (PSD), previously called Anesthesia Safety Network, is committed in the delivery of better perioperative care. Its primary goal is to make visible the lack of reliability of healthcare and the absolute necessity to build a new system for improving patient safety. They have begun by developing an open and anonymous incident reporting system focused on non-technical skills.
Each quarter they summarise in their newsletter cases reported on the platform. Read the latest newsletter.
