Title: Duckett Report
The Duckett Report
As mentioned at the Corporate Planning Day on Friday 31st March. The Government released Targeting Zero: supporting the Victorian hospital system to eliminate avoidable harm and strengthen quality of care and announced a suite of reforms to put patient safety first. The state-wide review, led by Dr Stephen Duckett, was commissioned by the Government following the discovery of a cluster of potentially avoidable newborn and stillborn deaths at Djerriwarrh Health Services.
The Duckett Report recommends revamping the department, and taking a closer look at the role of boards, hospital accountability and clinician engagement.
