WP6: EU Collaboration for Healthcare Quality Management Systems
Lead Partner: Spanish Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality (MSSSI), Spain
WP6 is oriented to strengthen cooperation between EU Member States (MS) and EU stakeholders on issues related to quality management systems (QMS) in healthcare, including Patient Safety (PS) and Patient Involvement (PI) by: obtaining insight and mapping of QMS in MS; sharing good organisational practices in QMS; reflecting on principles of good quality management in health care; and building and/or consolidating a network of organisations for sustained collaboration in the field of QMS.
Through the work of this WP, health authorities, stakeholders and HCOs at the national and regional level will experience increased awareness, exchange experiences and gain knowledge on Good Organisational Practices (GOP) including PS and PI. It will also facilitate strategies for GOPs implementation at the national or regional level.
- To build a system (exchange mechanism) to share GOPs between EU MS and stakeholders.
- To provide a detailed analysis of the QMS in MS.
- To identify strategies and GOPs, focusing on quality improvement including PS and PI.
