Qual Saf Health Care 2010;19:260e261. doi:10.1136/qshc.2010.044123 "If the guiding ethos of health systems throughout the world were ‘live for the day,’ two pillars of quality would suffice [- effectiveness and efficiency]. Living for the day, however, is a high-risk mindset, and if a health system is also to prosper ‘tomorrow,’ a sensible precaution must be to embrace a further pillar of quality: sustainability. Put simply, this concerns the use of resources in a way to build, rather than undermine, operative resilience for the future delivery of high-quality healthcare."
