English summary

Patient safety in Hungary, as a distinct speciality has been neglected so far. Our Society has been founded recently to fill this gap. Our aim is to diffuse views regarding patient safety in the health care system. In order to fulfill this goal a committed team of professionals has to be formed. Therefore firstly we start to organize education for caregivers, but we also made attempts to incorporate this topic into the university education. We would like also to start later research in this topic.

The Hungarian Patient Safety Society would like to build wide-ranged international links and ready to cooperate with the enthusiastic advocates of patient safety all over the World.
