Inbjudan till Förbättringsfrukost 12 mars

Hur ska vi göra för att öka patientsäkerheten och förbättra vården med befintliga eller i en framtid mindre resurser?

Den 12 mars kommer världsledande forskaren inom patientsäkerhet, Richard I Cook, och pratar på vår Förbättringsfrukost.

Dessutom presenterar Vinnvård konkreta exempel på forskning som ger verklig nytta, dvs hur man kan leverera högkvalitativ vård och omsorg till alla människor, vid varje tillfälle, i alla situationer och på effektivaste sätt.
