Commonwealth Fund/Nuffield Trust International Conference on Health Care Quality Improvement, 2007


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, the United Kingdom, and Australia for an exchange on quality improvement policies and strategies. These forums have provided a unique opportunity for building relationships among senior policymakers in participating countries, showcasing innovations in quality improvement, and facilitating an ongoing exchange on what works and what does not in the quality improvement arena. The eighth conference in this series will explore challenges in delivering high-quality, efficient acute care, with a focus on coordination of care among hospitals, primary care settings, and nursing homes. The conference will examine issues around: patient safety, communication and information technology, hospital readmissions, and transitional care needs of complex, chronically ill patients. Project staff will explore opportunities for cross-national collaboration to improve coordination of care for hospital patients.
