Health care has evolved greatly over the past 20 years. Our knowledge of diseases and technological innovations have all contributed to improving life expectancy during the 20th Century. But one of the greatest challenges today is not about keeping up with the latest clinical procedures or the latest high-tech equipment. Instead, it is about delivering safer care in complex, pressurized and fast-moving environments. In such environments, things can often go wrong. Adverse events occur. Unintentional, but serious harm comes to patients during routine clinical practice, or as a result of a clinical decision.
Many countries in the world have already recognized that patient safety is important and are building ways and approaches to improve the quality and safety of care. They have also recognized the importance of educating health-care professionals on the principles and concepts of patient safety. Strengthening such competencies is needed in order to keep pace with the complexities of the system and the demands of workforce requirements.

Rova College in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health, its agencies and development partners organize an annual two-days strategic meeting between healthcare leaders, key stakeholders, policy makers & investors. It is designed to close strategic vacuums in healthcare through leadership and management development. It is a transformational platform for innovative ideas, corporate advocacy and trends that shape and drive change in the fast changing world of healthcare.
