Education and Training


“Patient safety is a core attitude and thus needs to be introduced early and then reinforced throughout postgraduate education and continuing professional development.”

Stefan Lindgren, President of the World Federation for Medical Education


In a busy hospital, finding time for continuous education can seem daunting for healthcare professionals. Mindful of this challenge the RCSI Hospital Group Quality & Patient Safety Directorate has developed this section to provide targeted, practical and precise education sessions for staff.  The education sessions have been developed following feedback from Clinicians and Quality & Patient Safety professionals.  The programme includes contributions from members of the RCSI Hospital Group QPS Directorate together with colleagues from Philip Lee Solicitors, La Touche Training and the Medical Protection Society.

We look forward to welcoming you to these education sessions.

The Annual Education and Training programme provides relevant content based on the needs of staff and the RCSI Hospital Group.
