Quality improvement and patient safety

 Quality improvement and patient safety​

The field of patient safety is the coordinated effort to prevent harm, caused by the process of health care itself, from occurring to patients. ​

We aim to determine the frequency, burden and preventability of healthcare associated harm in primary and emergency care settings, and to develop and implement interventions to improve patient safety in priority areas.​
