Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship
The Lucian Leape Patient Safety Fellowship Award was established in 2018 and 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 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."
Applications for the 2020 Fellowship are no longer being accepted
