    Following the posting of the recent anonymous blog by a brave nurse - a discussion was started on Twitter about the aspect of accountability, duty of candour mixed with a no blame culture. If there has been a drug error: The person who did the error needs to feel secure in the knowledge that there is a no blame culture, otherwise they may not report it in the first place. The patient needs to be told that they has been an error with their care The person who did the error needs to be held to account So, can these three points coexist or are we wanting the impossible?

    There is an urgent need to respond to the challenges experienced by carers at the point of transition and beyond, by ensuring early and coordinated planning, effective information sharing and communication and clear transition processes and guidelines. A person‐centred and family‐centred approach is required to minimise negative impact on the health and well‐being of the young adult with intellectual disabilities and their carers.

    I would be interested if you experience psychological safety in your workplace - even if it is not in healthcare. Do you feel safe to own up to mistakes? Do you feel that your opinion is listened to and your wellbeing looked after if you have been involved in an incident? Interesting blog on the hub explaining this...

    This blog discusses the barriers in tackling some of healthcares biggest patient safety problems - medication labelling and drug errors to name just one. It highlights the need to listen to experts outside of healthcare as localised solutions do not solve the wider, more complex issues of patient safety.
