Description

The overall goal of this study was to identify the occurrence, causation, impact, and preventability of injury to patients due to healthcare management, with a view both to advancing understanding of the quality of healthcare in a “no fault” legal environment, and to actively improving the quality of care received by future patients in New Zealand public hospitals.
