This intensive two day masterclass will provide Root Cause Analysis training in line with the 2019 Patient Safety Strategy and subsequent guidance. The course will offer a practical guide to conducting RCA with a focus on systems-based patient safety investigation as proposed within the latest guidance released by NHS England and NHS Improvement. The course provides insights into how RCA is evolving and gives detailed information on what standards RCA investigations are expected to reach following the detailed recent reviews of patient safety work across the NHS and healthcare.
The course is facilitated by Tracy Ruthven and Stephen Ashmore who have significant experience of undertaking patient safety reviews in healthcare. They were commissioned to write a national RCA guide by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership. They have also authored articles on significant event analysis and clinical audit/quality improvement, all techniques seen as increasingly relevant to improving patient safety.
