TrueProfile.io Supports World Patient Safety Day 2021
<h2>Advocating for Safe Maternal and Newborn Care</h2> <p>Today is <a href="https://www.who.int/news-room/events/detail/2021/09/17/default-calendar/world-patient-safety-day-2021," target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">World Patient Safety Day</a> which the World Health Organization (WHO) first established as an annual observance day in 2019. The resolution <a href="https://apps.who.int/gb/ebwha/pdf_files/WHA72/A72_R6-en.pdf" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">WHA72.6</a> was created during the 72nd World Health Assembly to “<a href="https://www.who.int/news-room/events/detail/2021/09/17/default-calendar/world-patient-safety-day-2021" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">enhance global understanding of patient safety, increase public engagement in the safety of health care and promote global actions to “enhance patient safety and reduce patient harm</a>”. </p> <p><a href="https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/patient-safety" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Patient Safety</a>, according to WHO, “aims to prevent and reduce risks, errors and harm that occur to patients during provision of health care”. This year’s theme is “<strong>Safe maternal and newborn care</strong>” where WHO urges all stakeholders to “<strong>Act now for safe and respectful childbirth!</strong>”&nbsp;</p> <p>As an organization, TrueProfile.io advocates for Patient Safety by ensuring that only vetted skilled healthcare professionals are given our <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/resources/what-is-a-trueproof" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">TrueProof</a> seal. A medical worker with their own TrueProof is ready for employment where regulators require <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/resources/document-verification-explained" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Primary Source Verified</a> (PSV) credentials. Not only that, we support nurses, midwives and other healthcare professionals with the resources and support they need to enrich their careers.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="1000" height="667" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_17771614-1.jpg" alt="World Patient Safety Day 2021" class="wp-image-12339" title="World Patient Safety Day 2021" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_17771614-1.jpg 1000w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_17771614-1-300x200.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_17771614-1-768x512.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></figure> <h2>Ensuring Quality Healthcare</h2> <p>TrueProfile.io is committed to making health care safer for everyone by upholding the quality of health care delivery. Our PSV and background screening solutions ensure that medical professionals are certified and qualified to serve patients around the world. We validate the standard of quality healthcare work that our Members can provide wherever they work. This helps protect not just patients but also <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/resources/background-screening-protects-communities" target="_blank">communities</a>, colleagues and organizations. Our verifications solutions bridge the trust gap between qualified candidates and employers looking to hire credible medical staff. </p> <h2>We Help to Ensure that Nurses and Midwives are Ready for Employment</h2> <p>Nurses and Midwives who are already fully verified and in possession of a TrueProof are ready to be employed and get licensed in any country where they are needed. Having your pre-verified documents from TrueProfile.io gets rid of the friction of authenticating your credentials repeatedly, expediting the application process. Business Partners and international employers prefer pre-verified applicants with up-to-date information on their myTrueProfile. This indicates that applicants are ready to get deployed so that organizations can fill vacancies quickly. Qualified and skilled medical staff on location and ready to provide health care decreases the risk of maternal and newborn deaths from preventable causes. Healthcare workers on hand reduce the wait time that can mean life or death in some cases.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="1000" height="667" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_359949305-1.jpg" alt="World Patient Safety Day 2021" class="wp-image-12341" title="World Patient Safety Day 2021" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_359949305-1.jpg 1000w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_359949305-1-300x200.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/09/shutterstock_359949305-1-768x512.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></figure> <h2>Resources to Support Medical Workers</h2> <p>TrueProfile.io continues to support our Members beyond document verification services. We provide <a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/resources/build-a-better-career-on-the-new-trueprofile-io" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">resources, articles, whitepapers, and continuing education</a> opportunities to nurture and augment field knowledge. One of our key Member benefits is our partnership with <a href="https://member.trueprofile.io/ati/modules" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">ATI</a> Nursing Education. We offer our Members discounted rates and access to ATI modules to supplement traditional education modules and upskilling with online learning. One of ATI’s Nursing Education Modules focuses on <a href="https://member.trueprofile.io/ati/rl-maternal-newborn" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Real Life: Maternal-Newborn</a>, where students are exposed to real-life scenarios that enhance their decision-making skills without the risk to patients.</p> <h2>Creating Communities that Promote Patient Safety</h2> <p>Part of our support for Members is creating communities that can support each other. Better support leads to better standards of healthcare and patient safety. One of TrueProfile.io&#8217;s Members, Midwife Supervisor <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/resources/interview-south-africa-uae-midwifery-journey" target="_blank">Sidumisile Dumisani</a> (Dumi), leads discussions around maternal and newborn care.</p> <p>“The shortage of midwives is a worldwide challenge. Midwifery is about taking care of the mother and baby’s well-being. It is a passion and a big responsibility that goes way beyond delivering a newborn baby.”&nbsp;</p> <h4><a href="https://www.trueprofile.io/member/register" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">TrueProfile.io</a> upholds the standards of maternal and newborn care by verifying healthcare credentials.
