Reducing risk through practical techniques to improve the quality and safety of healthcare delivery
Low reliability in the delivery of healthcare has been identified as a risk for patients, clinicians and healthcare organisations.
Action to avoid adverse outcomes and associated patient dissatisfaction has led to calls for all in healthcare to embrace such quality improvement.
