- Safety (avoiding harm from the care that is intended to help).
- Effectiveness (aligning care with science and ensuring efficiency).
- Patient-experience (including patient-centeredness, timeliness and equity)
We need to locally develop an approach to reviewing mortality at a patient, organisation, pathway, community and population level that is based on best evidence from England and internationally. Also, and probably most importantly, we must engage with and involve patients and carers in the design and use of this process. This will also help in communicating what we’re doing to the public to provide clear transparent messages that include appropriate reassurance.
