The State Claims Agency (SCA) National Quality, Clinical Risk & Patient Safety Conference, which aims to educate and inspire those involved in advancing patient and service user safety in health and social care, will be held virtually in 2021.

Across three conference webinars in March, April and May, we will examine, together with national and international speakers, the theme ‘Implementing and sustaining change in health and social care’, including the legacy of COVID-19 on the delivery of care.

This is a key activity in the education strategy of the SCA’s Clinical Risk Unit and is aimed at health and social care services covered by the Clinical Indemnity Scheme.
