Implementing the National Guidance on Learning from Deaths released by the National Quality Board in March 2017
The National Quality Board has published a first edition of National Guidance on Learning from Deaths, providing a framework for NHS trusts on identifying, reporting, investigating and learning from deaths of people in their care. The need for national guidance was identified as one of the highest priority recommendations in our report Learning, Candour and Accountability, published in December last year. Earlier this month, more than 450 senior executive and non-executive directors of trusts, plus family and carer representatives met to discuss how this guidance should be implemented.
