Quality and Safety

Patients rely on clinicians and the organisations they inhabit for their safety and well-being. There has been a massive shift in thinking from the 1990’s where hospitals were places fraught with risk to a modern service where patient have never been safer.  Challenges remain maintaining high quality care and making new innovation to improve where quality and safety are less than an acceptable threshold. Finding that threshold is itself an interesting question with diminishing returns affecting all patient safety programmes. Patient safety is now a global brand with many opportunities to disseminate to and learn from international communities.
