Got Quality?  – The Urgent Need to Focus on Quality and Not Solely Costs

Date: Monday 7th October 2019

Time: 17.00-18.30

Venue: Cicely Saunders Institute, Bessemer Road, London SE5 9PJ

Speaker:  Professor Joan Teno, Professor of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University, Adjunct Professor of Health Systems, Policy, and Practice (Brown School of Public Health).

In 2018, Dr Teno was named one of the visionaries in hospice and palliative care. Throughout her career, she has been one of the leaders in defining and operationalizing how we measure the quality of care for those who are dying through bereaved family member surveys and use of administrative data. Join us for this free Annual Lecture and discussion on how to ensure that healthcare research captures quality, produces patient-centred outcomes and is not driven by inappropriate financial models.
