PATH (performance assessment tool for quality improvement in hospitals) project

As part of activities to improve governance of hospitals and performance management, the WHO Country Office, the Croatian Medical Association and Croatian Society for Health Quality, in collaboration with Croatian Accreditation Agency and European Society for Quality in Health care (ESQH), organized a one-day symposium in Zagreb on 12 February 2010. This PATH project activity emphasized patient safety and patient-centeredness as top priority in quality health care. Seventeen lecturers discussed the various aspects of different stakeholders’ involvement to enhance quality and patient safety. The concept of patient safety and WHO programmes in this area were presented along with the PATH experience in measuring patient safety.
