One year “no cost extension” for PaSQ Joint Action


On its December 1st 2014 meeting in
Brussels, the Council of the European
made an explicit reference to PaSQ JA
in the Conclusions, point 29 g) and h).

The Council welcomes the work and results on the implementation of its Recommendation 2009/C150/01 as regards to exchange and implementation of good practices, and: “Invites the Member States and the Commis-

sion to: Develop further work on the dimen-
sions of quality in healthcare, taking into account existing knowledge, including the work of the “Joint Action on patient safety and quality of care” (PaSQ), and to “Finalise by December 2016 a framework for a sus-
tainable EU collaboration on patient safety and quality of care, also taking into
account the results of PaSQ JA”.

PaSQ Joint Action has 61 Partners, being all EU Member States plus Norway,
and main stakeholders.


In order to maintain key PaSQ tools and activities, as well as to further confirm the added value of its network, PaSQ Executive Board has requested, and CHAFEA (The Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food Executive Agency entrusted by the European Commission to implement the Health Pro-
gramme) has granted to PaSQ JA one year “no cost extension” period.

This means that the following three activities will be going on until March 31st 2016:

- Collection and Review of Good Practices,

  • Patient Safety Practices (PSPs) by WP4, and
  • Good Organisational Practices (GOPs) by WP6,
- Implementation of Safe Clinical Practices
by WP5,
- PaSQ Communication by WP2, and PaSQ
by WP7.

About 500 Good Practices with relevant
contacts and meeting PaSQ quality criteria
are accessible from the PaSQ Home page

The Third Review Process of Good Prac-
tices is in course.

WP6 and its partners are working on the final
reports regarding mapping of quality mana-
gement systems
in the EU Member States,
as well as on a set of recommendations for

About thirty-five (35) Exchange Events have been organised in the EU Member States to exchange information regarding selected clinical and organisational good practices, and build relationship between experts, practi-tioners and decision makers. These events continue to be one of the preferred PaSQ mechanisms for Knowledge Transfer.

Let us share with you the details of PaSQ and
WHO High 5s information and discussion
meeting in Helmond, Netherlands.

    On December 12th 2014, the participants
    from Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Latvia,
    Netherlands and Switzerland shared their
    experiences on Medication Safety Crossing
    Med Rec innovation from admission
    to discharge, and safe management of High
    Risk medication.

    Participants were invited to prepare a poster
    on their medication safety initiatives.
      The jury awarded the 1st prize on medica-
      tion reconciliation to Petar Pekic, MD from

      220 Healthcare Organisations (HCOs) from
      18 European countries have participated in
      the implementation of Safe Clinical Practices

      Performed assessment on the one year
      of four chosen SCPs on safe
      surgery, medication safety, paediatric care,
      and medical activities, has shown an overall
      positive development.

      The implementation in the HCOs was
      two-folded: it was aimed to deepen the
      as well as to introduce a
      safety practice implementation.

      As reported, the WP5 tool boxes developed
      as a support to implementation process, were
      used between 68% and 94% by HCO coordi- nators.


      Expected outcomes for Sustainability are to
      build a permanent collaborative network on
      Patient Safety that will be enlarged to address
      quality issues, and reinforced by assuring
      long-term EU Member States engagement in
      the PaSQ network, together with the Commis-
      It should see the implementation of a col-
      laborative business model
      and financial
      of the permanent network with
      better involvement of field actors (healthcare
      professionals, clinicians, patients), and com-
      petent authorities
      (government officials,
      administrators, NGOs).


      Raising awareness on Patient Safety is
      becoming more and more important.

      In the organisation of Austrian Network for
      Patient Safety and its partners, supported by
      the National Ministry of Health, for the first

      time, Austria will have its National Patient
      Safety Day on September 17th 2015

      Join this event, and let the example of Austria
      encourage you to introduce it in your own
      country as well.
