UK: Launch of the Nursing and Care Quality Forum
In UK, the Nursing and Care Quality Forum, which aims to improve the quality of nursing care across all care settings, have met Prime Minister David Cameron and Health Secretary Andrew Lansley. It will now start its work by identifying and supporting the spread and adoption of best practice across four areas:
- how to promote accountable nurse leaders across the NHS.
- how to encourage the right culture and the right values
- how to involve, listen to, hear and respond to feedback from patients
- how to make sure that nurses have the time to give high-quality care to patients
