He toki ngao matariki Aotearoa

Resilient healthcare

Resilient health care is defined as the capacity to adapt to challenges and changes at different system levels, to maintain high-quality care.

Resilient health care is defined as the capacity to adapt to challenges and changes at different system levels, to maintain high-quality care [1]. This recognises the dynamic, independent and inter-dependent relationships that make up the health care system and how these interact to create both high-quality care as well as inevitable risk. We use this understanding to develop new approaches to creating safe, high-quality care in Aotearoa and refer to this as He toki ngao matariki Aotearoa.
