    OurDX attempts to close communication gaps between different health care professionals and patients by making it easy to share information and ensuring transparency. Patients have access to clinician notes, meaning they can flag any perceived errors or areas of conflicting understanding. The tool also allows patients and their families to document their priorities, concerns and symptoms prior to a medical appointment. Preliminary findings The number of patient-reported diagnostic breakdowns has been relatively small. Giving patients the opportunity to write about their experi

    Pregnant women are being advised by some health professionals not to have the Covid vaccine despite an edict from the NHS that they should encourage them to get the jab. One in six of the most critically ill Covid patients requiring life-saving care are unvaccinated pregnant women, figures released last week show. Yet messages sent to the Vaccines and Pregnancy helpline, launched on 20 August to help pregnant women navigate information about the vaccine, suggest that some midwives are advising against the jab. One said: “I was initially keen to have the vaccine and then advised by a

    A national tech chief has called for a ‘radical simplification’ of the way in which NHS patients can opt out of having their data shared. NHSX chief executive Matthew Gould today said the current system was “overly complicated” with “too many different opt out mechanisms” and it needs to be made “super simple” for the public. His comments come as NHSX, NHS Digital and the Department of Health and Social Care are working on the much-delayed and controversial GP data-sharing programme. The scheme was paused indefinitely this summer after backlash from GPs and campaigners. Speaking

    Safety clutter is the accumulation of safety procedures, documents, roles, and activities that are performed in the name of safety, but do not contribute to the safety of operations. Safety clutter is a problem because of the opportunity cost of ineffective activity, because clutter results in cynicism and ‘surface compliance,’ and because clutter can hamper innovation and get in the way of getting work done. The authors of this paper identify three main mechanisms that generate clutter: duplication, generalisation, and over-specification of safety activities. These mechanisms in turn are

    A TikTok user who went viral with a video of herself removing her implanted birth control device has prompted calls among sexual health experts for better monitoring of social media platforms. In a video which has gained over 178,000 likes, TikTok user Mikkie Gallagher is filmed performing a ‘DIY IUD removal’ wearing medical gloves, writing on top of the post: “A lot easier than I thought TBH,” and “Catch of the day: Mirena IUD, 2 inches”. An intrauterine device (IUD) is inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy and sometimes assist in relieving period pain. They usually need to

    This online event is an important update for prescribers, and for those who take prescribed medicines, on the RPS Prescribing Competency Framework.

    Ministers are to legislate more powers over how data on patients is collected and are imposing a 'duty' on the NHS to share patient information when doing so would benefit the system. The Health and Social Care Act 2021 already allows for sharing of data on an individual basis but staff have reported finding it hard to share it when it comes to primary and secondary care and administrative purposes. The new draft strategy produced by NHSX, has suggested it may want to use cloud storage to create a set of “structured data records” with the idea that it would make it easier for patie

    This project was commissioned because of an issue with multiple medicines records being held by different agencies for local children with complex needs and at the end of life. The project was highly commended by NICE and a poster was presented at the NICE Annual Conference in 2015 (see poster below). This duplication of records was believed to be a major risk factor for medicines errors and a waste of clinical time. It also meant that parents needed to repeat information about their children’s medicines time and again, as they accessed services, including inpatient services, tertiary cen

    A recent blog I wrote (see link below) brings together key information for clinicians, and especially for prescribers, from a variety of sources, including patients, relatives and carers. The aim is to help to prevent patients with autism and learning disabilities being harmed by inappropriate medicines. I began this in 2018 following the death of Oliver McGowan, which I cover in teaching for (non-medical) prescribing students and in my clinical education work. It links to the NHS Learning Disability Mortality (LeDeR) Review Programme. Key points: Most of the prescribing in thi

    Today, four leading global organisations dedicated to fighting preventable deaths due to medical errors announced their partnership to co-convene the #uniteforsafecare programme on World Patient Safety Day (September 17, 2020). In June, the Patient Safety Movement Foundation announced the wide-ranging campaign to bring attention to system-wide improvements that will ensure better health worker and patient safety outcomes, called #uniteforsafecare. Now, the organisation will be joined by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), The Leapfrog Group, and International Society for Qual

    As the world writhes in the grip of Covid-19, the epidemic has revealed something majestic and inspiring: millions of health care workers running to where they are needed, on duty, sometimes risking their own lives. In his article in the New York Times, Don Berwick says he has never before seen such an extensive, voluntary outpouring of medical help at such a global scale. Millions of health care workers are running to where they are needed, sometimes risking their lives.

    Do-not-resuscitate orders were wrongly allocated to some care home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, causing potentially avoidable deaths, the first phase of a review by England’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) has found. The regulator warned that some of the “inappropriate” do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DNACPR) notices applied in the spring may still be in place and called on all care providers to check with the person concerned that they consent. The review was prompted by concerns about the blanket application of the orders in care homes in the early part of t

    I've been posting advice to patients advising them to personally follow up on referrals. Good advice I believe, which could save lives. I'm interested in people's views on this. This is the message I'm sharing: **Important message for patients relating to clinical referrals in England** We need a specific effort to ensure ALL referrals are followed up. Some are getting 'lost'. I urge all patients to check your referral has been received, ensure your GP and the clinical team you have been referred to have the referral. Make sure you have a copy yourself too. Things

    NHS Digital and the Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) have launched a consultation as part of the next phase of a programme to align private healthcare data with NHS recorded activity. The consultation sets out a series of changes to how data is recorded and managed across private and NHS care, along with a series of pilot projects, based upon feedback from a variety of stakeholders. It aims to seek the views of private and NHS providers, clinicians, the public and other organisations with an interest in private healthcare and will be used to help shape the future changes.

    Dozens of hospital trusts have failed to act on alerts warning that patients could be harmed on its wards, The Independent newspaper has revealed. Almost 50 NHS hospitals have missed key deadlines to make changes to keep patients safe – and now could face legal action. One hospital, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Foundation Trust, has an alert that is more than five years past its deadline date and has still not been resolved. Now the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has warned it will be inspecting hospitals for their compliance with safety alerts and could take action against hospi

    We will need to work in different ways from usual and the focus should be what information you share and who you share it with, rather than how you share it. The following advice sets out some of the tools that you can use to support individual care, share information and communicate with colleagues during this time. This includes communications tools where data is stored outside of the UK. This advice is endorsed by the Information Commissioner’s Office, the National Data Guardian and NHS Digital.
