Tuesday 28th November

Abstract: Research on patient safety underscores the role of organizational factors in facilitating or impeding improvement. To discern the factors affecting patient safety, including specific, semi-specific, and unspecific elements, a focus on unspecific factors is crucial.
Colleen and Holger will guide us on a discussion about the role of organizational factors in resilient performance and better health care quality management.
There will be time for discussion and questions after the conversation.
