NIHR Newcastle Patient Safety Research Collaborative


Regular Event: Newcastle PSRC Academic Career Development Open Session

We are the Newcastle NIHR Patient Safety Collaborative. Our aim is to grow connections to build a community in patient safety research. To learn more about what patient safety means to us, watch a short video from our PhD students (Growing Community in Patient Safety Research). 

We are looking to bring people from different career stages and backgrounds together to improve health and care across settings. Through developing meaningful links and collaborations, we can connect research and practice for wider benefit.  

We meet the first Thursday of the month 11.30-12.30 in the Howden Room in the King George VI Building. 

If your work and / or experiences are connected to patient safety, or you are simply interested in learning more, come and meet us!

Each of the three research projects make use of existing, routinely collected data on cancer patients, their diagnoses, their treatment and healthcare, as well as other, widely available data on the nature of different communities, geographies and localities.
