Programme co-developed with:
Following the successful inaugural patient safety event, Open Forum Events now invites you to further consolidate knowledge and learning by attending the Patient Safety: Safer Culture-Safer Systems conference.
The Patient Safety Strategy 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.
One year on and the first yearly progress report has been published and despite the challenges faced due to Covid-19, improvements have been made against the ambitions laid out in the strategy. The evidence shows that safe care was delivered to 110,000 patients who have been treated for the virus to date in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Although the pandemic has impacted the pace of implementation of the strategy, it has also promoted positive change by promoting increased flexibility and adaptation, problem-solving at pace and more collaborative team working.
The Patient Safety: Safer Culture-Safer Systems conference will focus its attention to the measures being undertaken and the impact they are having on keeping patients safe from unintended or unexpected harm.
Delegates will gain:
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.
The Patient Safety Strategy has 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 Insight, Improvement, Involvement.
The annual progress report for the NHS Patient Safety Strategy reveals that the progress in systems development include:
• Description of the AHSN Network
• Overview of the AHSN Network Safety Plan and how it will support the NHS Patient Safety Strategy
• Impacts, benefits and successes.
• Ways to get involved in your local AHSN and support patient safety wherever you work.
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.
Sharing the recurrent investigative themes and recommendations from NHS Resolution to reduce claims. Gain an understanding of why patients and families claim and what patients and staff want following harm. Hear and access free support materials to improve claims risk management that can be applied locally to support improve both patient and staff safety.
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.
