The Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care is pleased to present the next in our ongoing series of free webinars.

In July 2019 the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare published the report The state of patient safety and quality in Australian hospitals 2019. The report includes information about key advances in safety and quality in Australia; prevalence of common safety risks to patients; action taken to identify and drive the delivery of appropriate care; and the Commission's approach to supporting value-based health care. You can access the report here.

Join A/Prof Amanda Walker as she focuses on the key messages of the report along with a discussion of a number of aspects including the healthcare acquired complications list data.
