Please join us on Wednesday 26 June from 3:00 pm when we welcome Emeritus Professor David Dunt and Professor Erwin Loh to share their extensive experience and insights on public reporting of hospital performance data.
The presentation will explore senior medical directors’ perceptions of public reporting of hospital performance data, how public reporting contributes to quality improvement with health services and how that can be improved.
