Since 2014 the Platform for Continuous Improvement of Quality of Care and Patient Safety (Plateforme pour l’Amélioration continue de la Qualité des soins et de la Sécurité des patients or PAQS npo) supports the Brussels and Walloon healthcare organisations in developing and managing initiatives on continuous improvement of the quality of care and patient safety.

PAQS is constituted of managers, healthcare professionals, insurance companies, universities and patients. This pooling of expertise and resources makes it possible to work together, in a consistent and cohesive approach. PAQS also works closely with regional authorities.

The platform evaluates the sector’s needs, coordinates existing initiatives, develops complementary activities and shares good practices of healthcare organisations. Its vision: A healthcare sector aiming for excellence in its practices and structural function through the standardization of continuous improvement tools and innovation.
