Indeed, it is the inspiration from Patient Safety leaders such as Dr Mayer that have provided the motivation to create a platform such as ICGRx. I am excited that PSMF will be working with ICGRx as a key partner to prioritise patient safety among students, trainees, clinicians, patients, leaders and wider stakeholders.
