Adverse Events
Reporting adverse events nationally signifies an important step on the road to improving health outcomes for New Zealanders.

The key is to improve safety by encouraging open and transparent reporting of incidents when something goes wrong.

The intention of the report is to support DHBs' continuous quality improvement focusing on shared learning to move towards improving systems and minimising the possibility of future incidents.
