U.S.--U.K. Conference on Health Care Quality Improvement, 2002


Concerns over health care quality are driving health policy in both the United Kingdom and United States. In May 1999, the Fund and the Nuffield Trust sponsored a symposium that brought together national leaders, health care practitioners, and researchers from both countries for an exchange of information and perspectives on quality of care. The second binational meeting in June 2000 produced an agenda for a U.S.-U.K. collaboration on quality, which is now under way, while the third meeting in June 2001 focused on strategies to change provider and organizational behavior. Building on this work, participants at the fourth meeting in June 2002 will examine a range of policy issues and options to improve quality, assess progress made by the collaboration, and recommend future directions for joint activities and research in this area. As a product of this series of trans-Atlantic meetings, a historic agreement formalizing the U.S.-U.K. collaboration on quality was signed by U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy G. Thompson and U.K. Secretary of State for Health Alan Milburn at the Fund's October 2001 international symposium. http://www.nuffieldtrust.org.uk
