Whilst learning from mistakes is crucial, I recently learnt about a programme which celebrates those who prevent them happening at all.
In November last year I had the privilege of spending time at Johns Hopkins Health system, in Baltimore USA. Johns Hopkins is known as a centre of excellence for patient safety and quality and I was undertaking an Observership. This was an opportunity for me to deepen my understanding of their approach to patient safety, and to consider how we might benefit from that knowledge here in the Bay of Plenty.
