In Safe Hands was originally launched in 2011 as a patient safety campaign by the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services. From 2014, the campaign continued as a five-year programme. The aim of the programme is to reduce patient harm.
The “In Safe Hands” campaign is currently measuring patient safety culture among professionals in all care giving units in every hospital. In addition, the campaign is now piloting a similar survey on patient safety culture among a selection of ambulatory clinics with regular general practitioners and emergency care.
