Quality and Safety in Healthcare
- Quality and Safety in Healthcare
The Francis Report (2013) revealed failures in the quality and safety of the healthcare provision in one English NHS organisation. The report recommendations will have a far-reaching impact on all healthcare organisations where the focus on quality and safety will be paramount. This course will introduce healthcare workers and managers to the key concepts in patient safety and tools to improve care. E-learning enables delegates to study at their own pace. It is anticipated the content will take around 20 hours to complete.
