The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has invited comments on a Draft National Patient Safety Implementation Framework (NPSIF).
The goal of the NPSIF is "to improve patient safety at all levels of health care across all modalities of health care provision, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow up within overall context of improving quality of care and progressing towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in coming decade. NPSIF applies to national and sub-national levels as well as to public and private sectors. Being a cross-cutting concept by nature, the scope of patient safety applies to all national programmes and envisages collaboration of wide range of national international stakeholders both within and outside health sector," the document said.
