Last year, the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) launched a safety improvement project focused on the Measurement and Monitoring of Safety. The Measurement and Monitoring of Safety Framework challenges our assumptions in terms of patient safety and helps to shift our thinking away from what has happened in the past, to a new lens and language that moves you from the absence of harm to the presence of safety.
The Measuring and Monitoring of Safety Framework consists of five dimensions that prompt you with a series of key questions to conceptually address any problem you have in safety. These questions move the discussion from assurance to inquiry. The primary questions are:
- Has patient care been safe in the past?
- Are our clinical systems and processes reliable?
- Is our care safe now?
- Will our care be safe in the future?
- Are we responding and improving?
