Why is it so hard to be open? The pitfalls and promise of transparency in health care. This event will bring together world leaders in thinking about transparency from New Zealand, the UK and Australia. Discussion will focus on the scandals, principles and history driving the transparency agenda, alongside some of the nuances of transparency in practice – how has it been done elsewhere and how can it be done intelligently and thoughtfully in New Zealand? How do we give the public what they want while driving quality improvement and increasing patient safety?
Modern health care is increasingly recognised as a complex adaptive system. Staff must navigate often-competing demands and dynamic conditions to deliver the safe care patients need. There is a growing appreciation that health care providers create safe, high-quality care through their ability to adapt every day, and to improvise and adjust. It is this ability, known as system resilience, that allows staff to predict and potentially prevent harm, making safety everyone's responsibility.
