About this event

Don Berwick, founder and former president of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, presents the findings from his review into patient safety.

About this event

Don was asked by the Prime Minister to carry out the review following the publication of the Francis report into the breakdown of care at Mid Staffordshire hospitals. His recommendations for the NHS include embracing a culture of learning; placing quality at the top of priorities; making sure patients are present, powerful and involved; using quantitative targets with caution and recognising that transparency is essential.

This event was run by the Department of Health and held at The King's Fund.
