Prof Don Berwick will publish a report on plans to create a culture of “zero harm” in the NHS


Intravenous news: BBC report “Plans to create a culture of “zero harm” in the NHS in England are to be set out later. The details will be unveiled in a report published by Prof Don Berwick, one of the world’s leading experts on patient safety. He was asked by ministers to look at the systems in place in the NHS after the Stafford Hospital scandal. Prof Berwick’s mantra is that no harm should be the norm in healthcare, much as it is in the airline industry. His work with other countries has centred on creating a system of openness and honesty and a willingness to learn from mistakes.”
