Mangaluru: Medical Education Programme on ‘Patient Safety in Obstetrics’ at FMMC

Mangaluru: The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Father Muller Medical College, is organizing a conference “Patient Safety in Obstetrics” to be held on 6th December, 2015 at the college premises.

Health care outcomes have significantly improved with the scientific discoveries of modern medicine. Alongside these benefits are significant risks to patient safety.


Patient safety is a global and regional public health issue affecting all types of health care systems, whether in developed or developing countries. The majority of health care errors are considered to be preventable. A change of culture over time is sought for sustainability purposes. Patient safety aims at making health care safe for both clients and health service staff.

The conference is proud to have received the endorsement of two giants in the field of patient safety – NABH and AHPI, the institution’s technical and knowledge partners. The conference will be inaugurated by Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim, who is very involved with mother and child health.

The CME will benefit medical practitioners in the periphery including government doctors from first referral units and all obstetricians, paediatricians, anesthetists, health administrators and nursing personnel.

Organising chairperson Dr. Prema D’Cunha, organising secretary Dr. Joycee Vas, Treasurer Dr. Alveera D’Souza were present at the press meet.
