Improving Global Health: Focusing on Quality and Safety (edX)
An introduction to the emerging field of global healthcare quality. Access to healthcare services is critical – but is it enough? We are at a critical inflection point in global health. We have seen improvements in access to care, but struggle to improve human health. A key component of this equation is quality of care. Improving access to healthcare is only as useful as the quality of care provided. Many agree that quality is important – but what is it? How do we define it? How do we measure it? And most importantly, how might we make it better?
