What is Patients for Patient Safety



Patients for Patient Safety (PFPS) is a global network of patients, providers, policy-makers and those who have been affected by patient safety incidents, dedicated to improving health-care safety through advocacy, collaboration and partnership. Millions of patients around the world are suffering every year due to preventable harm in health care and PFPS believes that safety will be improved if patients are placed at the centre of care and included as full partners.

PFPS Vision



"A world in which patients are treated as partners in efforts to prevent all avoidable harm in healthcare. PFPS calls for honesty, openness and transparency, and aims to make the reduction of healthcare errors a basic human right that preserves life around the world" (London Declaration, 2005).

PFPS Malaysia has members who are healthcare professionals from various strands of healthcare, and who have also experienced adverse events in their own lives.
Collectively, we are driven by a desire to improve the existing system. Our emphasis is on engaging health professionals and organisations to enter into dialogue with patients and patient organisations, NOT to see them as an adversary, but as collaborators to help improve patient safety.
