Quality Improvement Will Require a Major Commitment

Ross Wilson


The current issue of the Longwoods journal, HealthcarePapers (Vol. 2 No. 1) examines strategies for improving the safety of patients in the healthcare system. The lead paper was written by two Canadian experts, G. Ross Baker at the University of Toronto and Peter Norton at the University of Calgary, who are to be commended for putting the issue forward. In this issue of Hospital Quarterly we are pleased to publish the abstract of their paper. We are fortunate to have a comprehensive response from Australian Ross Wilson who led The Quality in Australian Health Care Study and is considered a world authority on patient safety.
