Patient safety June 12, 2012 at 11:41 AM
The Health Foundation is urging healthcare organisations and leaders to ensure patient safety remains their top priority at a time when many are faced with unprecedented financial pressures and increasing demand on their services. As part of its drive to increase awareness, the Health Foundation has launched a series of thought papers, giving healthcare experts within their respective fields the opportunity to share their ideas and experiences in patient safety. The thought papers are: – The role of the patient in clinical safety – Proactive approaches to patient safety – Personal accountability in healthcare: searching for the right balance – How can leaders influence a safety culture? – Reinventing healthcare delivery.
