The latest Learning from Adverse Events report shows that health care providers in New Zealand are continuing to develop and improve their systems for reporting, reviewing, and learning from adverse events. Each year, adverse events are reported to the Health Quality & Safety Commission by district health boards and other health care providers. The commission works with these providers to encourage an open culture of reporting so they can learn from what happened and put in place systems to reduce the risk of recurrence.
