“The situation that we have been through in last two years has demonstrated that healthcare is the heart of the region’s growth and has highlighted the necessity for advanced MedTech adoption to strengthen the health sector’s standing. Avenues like the Patient Safety Congress are critical for raising awareness about the needs and improvements required for patient safety.” Said Maher Elhassan.
BD is using a three-pronged approach to raise patient safety awareness as part of this programme. Educating Healthcare Care Professionals (HCPs) on how medical technology innovations can help reduce medication errors and infections, as well as increase diagnostic accuracy, while addressing care and safety across all stages of the patient journey, will be one of the company’s engagement activities.
