Madrid, October 5, 2021 7th International Seminar on Patient Safety and Clinical Excellence Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz

On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, a new edition of the International Seminar on Patient Safety Safety and Clinical Excellence will be held in Madrid (in the main lecture hall of  Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz) in conjunction with the Quirónsalud Awards for Outstanding Initiatives in Patient Safety. This year, we will once again present models and strategies from centers of excellence so that we may learn from the finest.

We have no doubt that our invited speakers—from different backgrounds and industries, geographic areas, and business cultures—will be of great interest to those on hand.


Professor Sir David Haslam, Former Chair of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Professor of General Practice at the University of Nicosia Medical School, former President of the British Medical Association, and past Chairman and President of the Royal College of Medical Practitioners.

Mr. Felipe Laorden, pilot and Safety Manager at Iberia Airlines, will describe best practices in safety within the airline industry.

Dr. Ezequiel García-Elorrio, a widely recognized international specialist in patient safety, Director of Quality, Patient Safety, and Clinical Management, Institute for Clinical Effectiveness and Health Policy of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and President-Elect of the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua).


There will be a limited in-person audience for the event due to the ongoing pandemic. However, for those who cannot travel to Madrid to attend, the proceedings will be livestreamed using a 3D virtual platform, which will certainly be an experience in and of itself.
