MeasurementWhy this priority?

Measurement was ranked highly by our stakeholders as an area where we could add value to existing work. We are committed to understanding
the patient perspective of safety.

Our stakeholders also identified measurement capability as an area where they required support. The establishment of standard measurement principles and techniques will enable the EM PSC to showcase its value added activity.
