In a nutshell: The authors of this review assessed the impact of hospital and system-wide interventions to improve patient safety. Studies which measured outcomes two years after implementation or more were more likely to show improved outcomes. It was difficult to assess the impact of organisational culture or other determinants. Effective leadership and clinical champions, adequate financial and educational resources and dedicated promotional activities may have a significant impact.
