Fondation Marisa Sophie

Foundation’s actions

  • Patient/parent engagement in patient safety according to the WHO “patients for patient safety” model, through sharing experience, animating presentations at universities and nursing schools, and making suggestions for improvements.
  • Promotion of organizational health concepts. Studies have shown that fostering and training team work can drastically reduce medical errors, for example 18% in surgery and up to 50% of errors in pediatrics. A pediatric demonstration project is in preparation.
  • Promoting accreditation of quality label of pediatric medical centers (EQUAM-Swiss quality label) and developing satisfaction questionnaires for parents to monitor the quality of health care treatments of children.
