The Health Foundation publishes paper by Caroline Lecko - Patient safety and nutrition and hydration in the elderly

The Health Foundation has recently published a new paper ‘Patient safety and nutrition and hydration in the elderly’ by Caroline Lecko (May 2013). The highly topical paper is available to download from the Health Foundation’s new patient safety resource centre. The patient safety resource centre pulls together existing evidence and new resources, from experts such as Caroline, to help deliver safe and reliable care.

The Health Foundation is an independent charity working to improve the quality of healthcare in the UK. They want the UK to have a healthcare system of the highest possible quality - safe, effective, person-centred, timely, efficient and equitable. They believe that in order to achieve this, health services need to continually improve the way they work.

The Health Foundation inspire and create the space for people to make lasting improvements to health services. They conduct research and evaluation, put ideas into practice through their improvement programmes, support and develop leaders and share evidence to drive wider change to the quality of healthcare in the UK.
