Safety in Practice
The aim of the Safety in Practice programme is to create a consistent approach to enhancing the quality improvement capability of GPs within the Auckland region by focusing on patient safety.
The programme’s key objectives are to:
Augment the capacity and capability of quality improvement and patient safety methods and processes;
Improve and develop GP practice systems and processes to ensure critical, high risk processes are carried out safely and reliably;
Prevent or reduce harm and improve the quality of care for patients with chronic conditions through safer and better management of medications; and
Promote a culture of safety.
A number of AH+ practices have participated in the Safety in Practice Programme since it started in 2014; in 2016/17 seven practices were involved. AH+ works with DHBs to support practices to implement the various care bundles.
