The Get It Right Initiative reports include initial research and subsequent investigative reports undertaken or commissioned by GIRI working groups.
Initial GIRI research is presented in four parts: ‘Call to Action’ and ‘Strategy for Change’ are summaries of the full research that set out key points, areas of focus, and outline the Initiative’s plans. The ‘Research Report’ sets out in detail what was discovered and achieved, whilst the ‘Literature Report’ is a summary of parallel research into error that has been carried out both in the UK and worldwide.
