Commonwealth Fund/Nuffield Trust International Conference on Health Care Quality Improvement, 2004


Since 1999, the Fund and the Nuffield Trust have sponsored a series of annual symposia for U.S. and U.K. government officials, health researchers, and practitioners to promote the exchange of ideas on quality improvement policies and strategies. These transatlantic meetings have focused on such critical issues as patient safety, changing physician and organizational behavior, use of information technology, disparities in health care, and public reporting of provider performance data. A product of the series is an agenda for U.S.-U.K. collaboration on efforts to improve quality, formalized in an agreement signed by the two countries in 2001. Participants at the sixth quality improvement conference, which has been expanded to include Australian representation, will: 1) review the progress of the collaboration and recommend an agenda for the coming year; 2) explore which quality improvement strategies work and which do not; and 3) compare case studies of learning collaboratives in different countries to gauge their impact and sustainability.
