Patient Safety Improvement Group
.The Patient Safety Improvement Group aims to address National Standards (NSQHS) and support hospital leaders in the continuous risk management improvements to patient safety and reduce variation. 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.
