    A single system to report patient safety concerns would “keep people safer”, a newly appointed NHS watchdog has told HSJ. Henrietta Hughes – who will take up the post of patient safety commissioner in September – said both clinicians and patients faced a bewildering choice when looking to raise a safety concern, and that there was a need for a “report once” system. She said that when ”exhausted” clinicians “come to the end of a 12-hour shift, they don’t want to have to do a Datix report and a yellow card report, and if they’ve got a safeguarding concern or a concern about an individual condition, [to have to] send that somewhere else”. Dr Hughes added: ”Wouldn’t it be better if we had one report that you do, and all the information that comes from that report just gets sent to the appropriate authority? That’s the type of change that I think we’d like to see. I know, as a GP myself, that’s what I would rather do as a professional. But also, I think, for all the organisations, we could get so much more richness of information, we would get more reporting, and we’d keep people safer as a result of it.” She added that if a patient “wanted to report an individual clinician” they often ended getting bounced around the system, like a pinball. They get sent from pillar to post.” Read full story (paywalled) Source: HSJ, 8 August 2022

    Patient Safety is an essential part of health and social care that aims to reduce avoidable errors and prevent unintended harm. Human Factors looks at the things that can affect the way people work safely and effectively, such as the optimisation of systems and processes, the design of equipment and devices used and the surrounding environment and culture, all of which are key to providing safer, high quality care. New for September 2020, this part-time, three year, distance learning course, from the Centre of Excellence Stafford, focuses specifically on Human Factors within the Health and Social Care sectors with the aim of helping health and social care professionals to improve performance in this area. The PgCert provides you with the skills to apply Human Factors to reduce the risk of incidents occurring, as well as to respond appropriately to health, safety or wellbeing incidents. Through the study of Human Factors, you will be able to demonstrate benefit to everyone involved, including patients, service users, staff, contractors, carers, families and friends.

    The ThinkSAFE Logbook has four sections: Information about you. How you can help enhance your safety in hospital. Information and notes about your care. Other useful information for patients and families. The Logbook also includes a number of useful tools, tips and prompts to help you and the healthcare staff caring for you to share information. This will help you to be involved and informed about your care and treatment. The pages are ordered so that when they are printed double-sided they create an A5 booklet. Once printed, the pages can be folded and then either stapled down the fold to create a soft cover booklet, or hole-punched to fit inside an A5 ring-binder folder.

    Key findings: Though PPI is increasingly common in healthcare research, there is limited agreement about how, when, and why it should best be done. Patients and the public get involved in research for a variety of reasons but often because they want to help others and contribute to a better healthcare system. To enable involvement, PPI needs to be funded adequately, opportunities need to be clearly communicated, and support needs to be available for researchers and PPI contributors. More PPI on its own doesn’t necessarily mean better research, and doing PPI just for the sake of it can discourage researchers and disenfranchise people who get involved. PPI should be relevant and meaningful for the research and the people involved. PPI has the potential to improve research and empower contributors, but evidence about how that actually happens, to what extent, and to what effect, is limited. To monitor and evaluate PPI, researchers will need to agree on what study designs are appropriate, be clear about what PPI activities are meant to achieve, and focus evaluations on the process of PPI and/or its contributions to research.

    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 agendas and conduct of meetings. The other opted for a looser, less formal approach, as a ‘friend’ of the centre. The second example looked at a practice-based commissioning structure that was strongly guided by the Primary Care Trust and was trying to unite existing and new practice representatives into a new and dynamic network. The final example looked at a different kind of consortium, driven more by the practices themselves, in which patient representatives were integral and essential to the decision-making process. It was also looking to broaden its constituency with an area-wide health forum.

    This report looks at factors affecting patient engagement, potential solutions and practical next steps. Suggested strategies to enhance patient engagement for safer primary care include: educating health care providers about patient engagement supporting patients to become actively involved broadening the ways in which patients are involved recognising the importance of communities providing an enabling and supportive environment.

    Involving patients in improving safety states that supporting patient involvement in safety improvement will not solve all the safety issues in the NHS, nor does it negate the responsibility of health systems and professionals to provide safe care. However, involving patients and carers can be an important component of broader strategies. It highlights that, as patients come to be seen and treated as partners in their care, there is significant potential to make real gains in patient safety. Main approaches identified to involving patients in safety improvement Collecting feedback retrospectively. Asking patients to help plan broad service change. Encouraging patients to help identify risks when they are receiving care.
