The event started with a breathtaking Qur'anic recitation followed by a speech given by Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Ahdal, the Dean for Scientific Research, in which he welcomed both the President of Umm Al-Qura University (UQU) and the participants.

On this occasion, President of Umm Al-Qura University (UQU), Dr. Bakri Bin M'atooq Assas, gave a speech in which he insisted on the significance of the role scientific research played in community renaissance and the contribution thereof in peoples' development. He confirmed that UQU, with the support of both the rulers (May Allah bless them!) and Dr. Ahmed bin Muhammad Al Eisa, the Minister of Education, spared no attention to such domain, which was reflected in its social and national role.

Then, the Deanship started a presentation that uncovered studies and recommendations in the domains of patients' health. The presentation tackled the file of fatal medical mistakes and the statistics thereof, reports published by the National Patient Safety Foundation, reports by the Center for Patient Safety Research and Practice, as well as discussions presented by the World Health Organization.
