Each Baby Counts: Clinical Engagement Forum 2016

On 10 June 2016, the RCOG held the Clinical Engagement Forum to launch the first Each Baby Counts report.

Lead Reporters, Reviewers and other healthcare professionals with an interest in clinical governance and risk management the opportunity heard first-hand the findings emerging from the RCOG’s flagship quality improvement project to reduce avoidable harm in labour. The report was based on interim figures for 2015.

The event was well attended and attendees heard keynote talks from leading experts in the field of service improvement, risk management and incident investigation.
