F3: How Dutch hospitals continue their quality and safety journey

Wednesday 22 June 2022 | 15:00-16:00

Format: Presentation
Stream: Building Capability and Leadership

The Netherlands has a rich history in monitoring and improving patient safety. National longitudinal Adverse Event rates in hospitals have been available since 2007, resulting in high priority themes for patient safety programmes. After two decades of work in patient safety, a movement for more supportive and inspiring progress is needed to restore joy in work and to ensure patient safety. To deregulate healthcare, hospitals and governmental bodies focus on how to monitor quality by dialogues. In this session, Dutch experts share their insights and thoughts on how to further optimise quality by discussing national and local experiences to innovate transparency.
