    Leading your Organisation to Zero-Harm

    Tuesday 9 December 2014, Manchester

    A masterclass for leaders within healthcare who want to learn how to drive their organisations to a “Zero-Harm” culture. Patients still continue to needlessly suffer and in some cases die because of errors and incidents. Increasingly there is a strong belief that these incidents can and should be prevented if healthcare is to achieve world class levels. Prof Berwick, a former advisor to the US President Barack Obama, and author of the recent patient safety review in the UK has said he believes the NHS could offer the safest healthcare in the world. A number of industries such as the chemical or airline industries now achieve ZERO injuries on a regular basis. This has involved major changes in behaviours and culture. This workshop focuses on what health professionals can learn from these industries where a culture of ZERO has existed for some time.
