Following the successful, inaugural patient safety event held in Manchester in October 2019, Open Forum Events invite you to further consolidate knowledge and learning by attending the Patient Safety-Implementing the New Strategy conference.
The Patient Safety Strategy, published in July 2019, was designed to deliver improvements in patient safety and standards. The ambition is to make the NHS the safest system in the world to receive healthcare and it is thought that the implementation of the strategy could save nearly 1000 extra lives per year from 2023/24, whilst saving £100 million in care costs.
Based on three principles which are; A Just Culture, Openness and Transparency and Continuous Improvement, the strategy recognises three areas of work priority: Insight, Involvement and Improvement.
As a follow up to the conference ‘A New Strategy for Patient Safety--Insight, Involvement, Improvement’, this event will now turn its attention to the implementation of the strategy and how it is impacting on keeping patients safe from unintended or unexpected harm.
Delegates will learn more about:
Once again, we are delighted to introduce an outstanding line up of contributors, willing to share knowledge, experience and insight through the plenary sessions, with ample opportunity for interactive engagement with the delegate audience. The agenda has been designed to allow for casual networking amongst fellow professional and contemporaries committed to providing a safer NHS.
There are three guiding principles:
A Just Culture- Blaming people for non-malicious errors is not conducive to improved safety. The focus should be on changing systems and procedures to allow people to conduct their job more safely.
Open and Transparency-Encouraging staff to be open and honest when mistakes happen allows for shared discussion, learning and revisions to be made.
Continuous Improvement-A continuous focus to make quality improvements to the system by assessing what needs to be improved, how changes will make things better and how the impact can be measured. Empowering staff and patients to recognise and respond is crucial.
The three areas of work identified as priorities are:

The new strategy for patient safety is designed to develop the NHS into the safest healthcare system in the world. It will focus on three principles that should underpin implementation of
the strategy: a just culture, openness and transparency and continuous improvement. The strategy aims to: draw insight from multiple sources of patient safety information; give staff at all levels the skills and support they need to help improve patient safety and decrease harm in key areas by 50% by 2023/24.
The PSIRF will support the NHS to operate systems, underpinned by behaviours, decisions and actions, that assist learning and improvement, and allow organisations to examine incidents openly without fear of inappropriate sanction, support those affected and improve services.
The Patient Safety Academy has been formed from collaboration between two research groups in the University of Oxford, with expertise in patient safety, human factors/ergonomics and improvement science; the Quality, Reliability, Safety and Teamwork Unit (QRSTU) and Oxford Simulation Teaching and Research (OxSTaR).Project support involves provision of human factors patient safety training to all team members involved in a project. The PSA team provide support which enables the staff to choose the areas of concern they want to focus on, work together to generate potential solutions and then trial these solutions. The result is staff –led projects with improvements which fit their service and with successes and learning they can share with other teams.
A hot, two-course lunch consisting of multiple options will be provided for delegates. We cater for all dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten/dairy-free; just notify us ahead of time should you have any allergens or requirements.
Patient safety should be a golden thread of learning that connects all staff working in the NHS, across all disciplines, from apprentice and undergraduate right through to retirement. The NHS cannot expect to achieve improvements in patient safety if it is not embedded within education and training.
Although healthcare systems differ from country to country, improving patient safety encounters similar challenges. The NHS can benefit from discovering successful practices from elsewhere in the world and learn from what has not worked so well.
This is Homerton’s Story, on developing and integrating a technology into practice that aims to improve patient safety. We will outline our concept, planning, how we integrated, and how we keep momentum.
D5 was highlighted from internal and CQC review as a ward that had significant challenges so an improvement plan was put in place for the ward. The improvement plan included an away day for all the permanent staff on the ward and an MDT approach on ongoing changes.
