The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare is offering an interactive one-day course for up to 20 health professionals, students and educators on the inclusion of sustainability in quality improvement.
Sustainability has been recognised by the Royal College of Physicians as a domain of quality in healthcare, extending the responsibility of health services to patients not just of today but of the future.
