Message from the Dean of ISNC (Patron)

Dr. Rashad Hassan Habibulla Al-Kashgari, F.R.C.S (Glasgow)

I am delighted to witness yet again Ibn Sina National College for Medical Studies organize the 5th-Annual Scientific Conference (5th ISNC-ASC) on 2nd-3rd of April 2021. This two-day conference themed on “Patient Safety” is pertinent in the current perspective of Saudi Arabia and the world as well. One of the greatest challenges today is not only about keeping-up with the latest clinical procedures or high-tech equipment. But, it is about delivering safer care in complex, pressurized and fast-moving environments. The World Health Organization is working with governments, universities and schools worldwide, international professional associations in health science disciplines, have made patient safety practice and education relevant to the needs and requirements of contemporary workforce environments.
In our Institution’s constant pursuit, to contribute towards the advances in Saudi Arabian Healthcare which is at the core of our Institution’s mission, our conference is progressively increasing its outreach. This year we are extending our outreach to the north and northwest region of the Kingdom. The ever enthusiastic conference committees’ of the 5th ISNC-ASC have worked hard as ever to assemble enriching scientific sessions by nationally renowned keynote speakers on the topic and many other scientific deliberations aimed at propagating safer practice.
I, warm heartedly welcome all the distinguished guests, academicians, fellow participants and dear students from different regions of Saudi Arabia to attend the 5th ISNC-ASC.

It gives me immense pleasure in welcoming all to the 5th Ibn Sina National College-Annual Scientific Conference (5th ISNC-ASC) 2021 on Patient Safety. Principles and concepts of patient safety are universally recognized (Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health, the Saudi Commission for Health specialties, Saudi Food and Drug Administration etc.) for their importance in the healthcare practice and research. The 5th ISNC-ASC’s theme addresses the need for strengthening healthcare practices in order to keep pace with the healthcare demands of the kingdom. The scope and scale of the conference with the theme of “patient safety” means; there will be great opportunities to gather information, network and develop your knowledge alongside leaders in the field.
This event is targeted towards researchers, professionals, educators, students and healthcare practitioners to share ideas, issues, recent trends and future directions in the fields of patient safety in healthcare. I am very pleased to welcome all on-board this momentous gathering on 2nd-3rd of April 2021.
