Free seminar: Keeping patients safe – Learning from mortality reviews to improve patient safety

On 10 May 2017, the RCP hosted ‘Learning from mortality reviews to improve patient safety’ as part of it's Keeping patients safe seminar series. The event discussed how the National Mortality Case Record Review (NMCRR) can improve care and keep patients safe.

As well as hearing from the RCP's National Mortality Case Record Review (NMCRR) team about their work and the results of the programme's pilot phase, the seminar was an opportunity to hear about the wide-ranging work the RCP is undertaking to support improvements in patient safety.

The principles of quality improvement – improving quality, measuring quality and setting standards for quality – are embedded in all of the RCP’s work. The key to improving quality is ensuring there are high standards of safety for all patients receiving medical treatment across the NHS.
