    New research shows a rise in sharps injuries among healthcare workers around Europe over the last year. Respondents of the research said the rise in sharps injuries may be due to staff shortages and higher pressures and stress on healthcare staff. The survey, which covered more than 300,000 healthcare workers, found workers were being put at unnecessary risk of contracting deadly diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, with nurses being the ones primarily affected by the sharps injuries. The article concludes that more interventions need to be done to protect healthc

    The World Health Organisation has said cuts to the UK budget may put millions of lives at risk of dying from "neglected tropical diseases", leaving some of the poorest people in the world exposed. The diseases listed included elephantiasis, trachoma and Guinea Worm. According to the WHO, the UK was able to provide funding to at least 19 countries before the aid cut. There are now fears that vital medicine, an estimated at 277 million tablets used to treat tropical diseases would now expire. The financial impact of the pandemic, according to the The Foreign Office, meant the aid

The article covers: the history of gaslighting signs of gaslighting an example of gaslighting how to move and and how to counter gaslighting in the workplace.

    I am currently working to develop a new process for the investigation of incidents related to digital healthcare, something which clearly sits outside of the usual framework or process of investigating traditional patient safety incidents. I would be grateful for opportunities to discuss and share experiences and ideas with others. If you have already investigated these sort of incidents what sort of approach did you utilise and have you reviewed it post event in respect of effectiveness. @Keith Bates Clive has suggested it would be beneficial for us to discuss?

    Some years ago I stopped writing for journals, in favour of blogging & volgging. My reasons were: I specialise in patient involvement and inclusion, so I want the work of me and my colleagues to be easily found by everyone We didn't want our work to end up behind a paywall We work across disciplines and try to bypass hierarchies, especially in promoting action learning and patient led care I can see there are some really good Open Access Journals around. So my question for us all is: Which are the best Open Access Journals? Here a link to my digital profile:

    This survey has been designed to identify people’s attitudes to whistleblowing and their opinion on existing UK legislation in this matter. It provides an opportunity for the wider public to share their understanding and experience of whistleblowing and existing legislation which will help determine the creation of more effective legislation and effective protection for those who speak up, as well as to ensure that the development of new legislation in the UK is fair and equitable to all relevant parties, whistleblowers, UK public and businesses. The study is being conducted by the Centr

    Today is International Day of People With Disabilities so a good day to read about the Human Rights Model of Disability which replaces the Social Model still taught in many UK medical and nursing schools and the even more outdated Medical Model, which is still the dominant model across much of the NHS. The AdsFoundation will be publishing three short #LearnWithDrDog video scribe films, one on each of the models, early in 2021. As with all #LearnWithDrDog films, they will explain the concepts in fun, easy to access, 5 minute films, which will be free to use for educational purposes.

    The goals of this Just Culture Manifesto are to: articulate a vision of just culture that connects with people from all industrial sectors, around the world; speak to people in all roles – front line, support, specialists, management, both in private industry, government organisations and departments, and the justice system; provide a framework for other people to advance this vision of just culture. As referred to in the Just Culture definition, only a very small proportion of human actions is criminally relevant (criminal behaviour, such as substance abuse or misuse, gr

    This paper from ABHI details the role of surgical instruments and how they bring value to the NHS. It highlights the vast range and number of instruments that are needed in the NHS at any one time and, to ensure that these instruments continue to be safe and fit for purpose, makes the following recommendations: Investment in the replacement of aged surgical instrument inventory should be considered as a priority for NHS spending. The procurement of surgical instruments should be based on overall quality and value, with the demonstration of strong ethical and resilient supply chains
