Members of the Patient Safety Improvement Group meet annually to share ideas and innovations that focus on improving the safety and quality of care within their health services. They monitor progress against the Health Roundtable
Patient Safety Checklist and share information on the latest patient safety and quality initiatives.

The theme for the 2016 workshop is ‘Improving safety, accountability and quality through a culture of safety’.

Safe and reliable person centred care requires a culture of safety where leaders drive effective teamwork. There needs to be a visible process of continuous learning creating reliable standards, measurement and transparency. 

At the workshop members will share experiences and information on implementing innovative and effective practices and review results from the Patient Safety report that is provided 6-monthly.
