    Think back to 2006 and recall what you knew about patient safety, and patients as partners in safety. Now, pause for a second to reflect on where we are now, in 2021. Then, imagine what you want patient safety to look like in 15 years – 2036 to be specific. Join the Canadian Patient Safety Insitute in exploring how patients, families and communities have helped shape patient safety in the past 15 years, and contribute your thoughts on how we can accelerate safety efforts together in the next 15 years.

    Our recent observational study, published in the Health Informatics Journal, focussed on staff safety in the mental healthcare setting. We worked with a mental healthcare provider to extract and analyse incidents of adverse events. In one aspect of the work, we looked specifically at the incidents that were reported that had recorded a member of staff as a ‘victim’ of the adverse event. From the 1 September 2014 to the 31 March 2017, 19,693 members of staff were reported as victims across 10,119 adverse events. For context, this was the equivalent of around 25 incidents per week, but it i

    The solution to the problem, Neptune, uses simply extracted pre-existing data from EMIS and SystmOne. It cuts through the mass of data, highlighting only the problem areas. Data is transferred into our powerful database, which step-by-step takes the user through an automated process picking up all relevant patients, checking that their appropriate testing has taken place and flagging only the exceptions. What it delivers? It ensures all patients who were issued a monitored/AMBER drug have been correctly tested and are reminded, until all tests have been seen by the GP. This provides additional

    People can find it helpful to write down questions they have for healthcare professionals. This helps us to remember important things that we can easily forget to ask about when in hospital or once in a consultation with a doctor for example. If you don't wish or need to use the full Logbook you may still find the ThinkSAFE Question List useful when visiting your GP, hospital or other healthcare professional. The Question & Notes sheet has been designed to be printed double sided and then folded to create a pocket-sized document.

    The challenge Some patients leaving hospital need advice and support to help them take their medicines correctly and safely. Around 60 per cent of patients have three or more changes made to their medicines during their stay in hospital, and only 10 per cent of older patients are discharged with the same medication they were taking before they went into hospital. In some cases, errors or unintentional changes to a patient’s medication can occur because of miscommunication. This can lead to patients becoming unwell and being readmitted to hospital, causing unnecessary distress to the

    The key outcome is the development of a wearable medical device which is CE Marked and ready for a qualitative and quantitative evaluation study, which ultimately could assist 25,000 adults with a CVC for HD across the UK (Source: Renal Registry). The proof of concept pilot study is planned to start by the end of the 2018/19 financial year. MedConNecT North have also facilitated further connections with clinicians, and Tookie are now working with the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle with Dr Yincent Tse and Dr Heather Lambert, Consultant Paediatric Nephrologists.

    Picker Institute Europe reviewed the quality of patient engagement in primary care, how to measure it, and developments in patient involvement in primary care. Part of this paper considered three examples of notable practice in involving patients in the development of their general practice services. These were not selected because they were ‘typical’ but because they demonstrated, in some depth, a variety of approaches to patient involvement. The first example looked at two health centres with patient forums. One forum was more formal, with designated officers and control of the ag

    The framework outlined in this document provides a structure for thinking about engaging patients in patient safety and gives examples of how this can be achieved. It is mindful of the criticisms of approaches to patient engagement in patient safety and is a first step towards adopting a theoretical approach to this context. Some factors which influence engaging with patients in patient safety which were identified from this work are also presented. The framework describes three levels of patient engagement in patient safety across three levels of the NHS healthcare system. It also prese
