A patient safety focus for the DHB is promoting correct patient identification and matching patients to the procedure or health intervention intended for them. We encourage patients to drive patient safety and have produced a pamphlet outlining 4 ways patients can help. The pamphlet can be found here.
We are interested to receive feedback on this resource and where it might be usefully distributed.
