In September this year, as part of World Patient Safety Day, Patient Safety Learning asked people, via social media and the hub, to name three things staff most needed to be safe. We gathered your responses and are now pleased to present an image which shows the most common themes.
According to the responses we received, the four themes that became most obvious – the four things you think staff most need to be safe – are:
- Compassionate leaders and role models who prioritise their staff’s wellbeing
- A respectful, supportive team with good communication and united by a common purpose
- A safe and just culture that invites staff to speak up
- Psychological safety, protecting staff from burnout.
