Commonwealth Fund/Nuffield Trust International Conference on Health Care Quality Improvement, 2005


Since 1999, the Fund and The Nuffield Trust have sponsored annual symposia that have brought together senior government officials, leading health researchers, and practitioners from the United States and United Kingdom for an exchange on quality improvement policies and strategies. These transatlantic meetings have focused on such critical issues as: patient safety, strategies to change provider and organizational behavior, the use of information technology, disparities in health care, and public reporting on provider performance data. One of the series' products is an agenda for U.S.–U.K. collaboration on quality improvement efforts, formalized in an agreement signed by the two countries in 2001. Participants at the seventh quality improvement conference 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 quality initiatives in different countries to gauge their impact and sustainability.
