Have you had a look at the organisation "hearts in healthcare" set up by an anaesthetist in NZ.?There may be a chance to collaborate.

I am currently undertaking a project to support adoption of the value that 'We pay attention to the experience of patients and their families and loved ones' in our everyday work' so am very interested to ready Jocelyn's work
