is a european project involving 8 partners from Cyprus, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, United Kingdom and an external collaboration with Brazil.
The leading ideas are:
- Self-evaluation is the most powerful means by which an institution can experience a discontinuity of perception that can drive improvement.
The project started on 1st November 2008 and will run until 30th April 2011 (project end date has been post-poned to 29th of February 2012).
- Comparing own performance against others is the best way to promote self-evaluation.
PROSAFE provides ICUs with a method to continuously, easily, rigorously, and confidently measure own performance against others. By joining the project, an ICU will be helped to find out more about its adjusted mortality rate and to analyze the contributing factors.
