The general objective of the project is to improve patient safety and quality of hospital care through the promotion of DS best practices and standards. This project intends to elucidate main issues concerning ambulatory surgery, investigating DS at different levels of MSs health systems, and also offer realistic solutions, recommending evidence-based best practices and standards identified through benchmarking. This initiative aims to provide some relevant, practical and flexible answers to European health systems increasingly facing an ethical and political dilemma regarding how to assure sustainable and equitable access to safe and high quality health care.
This initiative will study, review, identify and promote essential components of DS systems and units, i.e. structures, clinical and patients management processes. The project will compare, select and systematically promote best practices and standards. It will also develop measurement instruments to gauge patients compliance with protocols and DS managers and providers conformity with standard inputs and processes.
