Lucian Leape Patient Safety
Fellowship Award

Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship

The Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship Award was established in 2018 and was announced at ISQua's 35th International Conference in Kuala Lumpur. The objective is to fund* physicians and health care leaders in developing countries, to advance and expand their expertise in patient safety, with the resultant improvement of the safety of patients in their local area.


Dr David Bates, on presenting the donation to ISQua President, Wendy Nicklin, on behalf of Lucian Leape, said that "Lucian recognised that most of the harm that occurs, happens in developing and transitional countries and that there is a tremendous need to build capacity in these areas. From speaking fees and consulting, Lucian established a private foundation to support safety-related work. He has decided to close the foundation and is donating the remaining funds to establish the Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship. This will be a one-year award that will support a fellow from a developing or transitional country who will complete the fellowship within their own country and will be mentored by a representative from ISQua."


*Maximum funding of €13,000 will be made available to cover the cost of additional training and/or internship(s) within professional institutions and conference attendance. The programme content is dependent on the professional interests and existing work commitments of the Fellow. There is no salary associated with this award.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2020 competition. Please watch this space for information on the 2021 campaign.
