About the network

The Nordic Network was formed in 2008 and had its first meeting at the 1st Nordic Patient Safety Conference in Stockholm (Saltsjöbaden) May 2010.At the Saltsjöbaden meeting it was agreed that the purpose of the network shall be:

  • to promote and advance healthcare safety research in the Nordic countries
  • to facilitate collaboration on research and application of research results among Nordic research institutions and clinical settings
  • to work towards attracting research funding for patient safety and quality, possibly via the establishment of a Nordic research agenda

Participants expressed their intention to begin establishing national research networks in countries where such a network does not exist.

The primary task of the network is to arrange a Nordic conference every second year.
