- Equip systems and organisations with priorities and insights to develop their patient safety plans.
- Support individuals to feel empowered in their knowledge of patient safety and what they could be doing to influence and improve at their organisations.
- To share the importance Aqua and the wider NHS are placing on patient safety and showing the relevance and breadth to its impacts.
The discussion was structured around key questions with the main themes captured in the report.
