Patients for Patient Safety Champions

Patients for Patient Safety (PFPS) works with a global network of PFPS Champions, who advocate for patient engagement in patient safety improvement efforts at international, national and local levels. Without the dedicated support and energy of the patient advocates, PFPS would not exist.

All PFPS Champions have attended a PFPS In-Country or Regional Workshop, and have committed to the vision described in the London Declaration and to the PFPS Collaborative Agreement.

PFPS started with 21 PFPS Champions who were selected to attend the first Patients for Patient Safety Workshop which took place in London, United Kingdom in November 2005. Their collective voice and passion to make a change in health care led to the drafting of the London Declaration. Today the programme has over 250 Patients for Patient Safety Champions from over 50 countries, advocating for safety improvements worldwide.
