Improving together: consumers, clinicians and services
The Health Quality & Safety Commission will hold the first of its quality forums in Auckland and Christchurch in October.
The forums are open to people working in health, as well as health consumers and groups representing consumer interests.
Consumer engagement and participation in the health and disability sector is a priority for the Health Quality & Safety Commission, and is an important aspect of quality improvement.
Beverley Johnson, who heads the Board of the Institute of Patient and Family Centered Care in the United States, will be the keynote speaker at the two forums. The Commission has brought her to New Zealand to share her experiences of working with hospitals and health organisations to improve consumer involvement and leadership.
The forums will be held at:
- Ko Awatea, Middlemore Hospital, Auckland, Tuesday 4 October 2011
- Cashmere Club, Garden Room, Colombo St, Christchurch, Thursday 6 October 2011
