This is a follow up to the Turn Up The Volume Conference 2015 on whistleblowing and patient safety. The event will focus on freedom to speak up and a just culture in health care.
We aim to provide a safe space where all involved can listen and learn from each other. Giving food for thought and ongoing reflection.
This is an interactive and inclusive listening exercise, where we plan to help everyone use the experiences of all those affected by cultures of fear to drive forward real change. The emphasis will be on transforming ideas into action, and moving beyond stereotypes.
Turn Up The Volume! is a Patient Safety movement open to all.
