    The ‘No Blame Culture’ being adopted by the NHS draws attention from individuals and towards systems in the process of understanding an error. This article in the Journal of Applied Philosophy argues for a ‘responsibility culture’, where healthcare professionals are held responsible in cases of foreseeable and avoidable errors. The authors argue that proponents of No Blame Culture often fail to distinguish between blaming someone and holding them responsible, They examine the idea of ‘responsibility without blame’, applying this to cases of error in healthcare. Sensitive to the undesirable effects of blaming healthcare professionals and to the moral significance of holding individuals accountable, the authors argue that a responsibility culture has significant advantages over a No Blame Culture as it can enhance patient safety and support medical professionals in learning from their mistakes, while also recognising and validating the legitimate sense of responsibility that many medical professionals feel following avoidable error, and motivating medical professionals to report errors.

    Recently an enduring discussion evolved on Twitter on why safety culture is important for patient safety. My reaction, of course, was: it isn’t. Let me explain why. I think it is possible to address safety without addressing safety culture. Or, rather, to focus on actions that will improve both safety performance and safety culture (as a by-product) at the same time. In this blog I propose some of these actions – showing how to create an understanding of how work is (actually) done (rather than what it says on paper), seeing what makes it difficult and identifying what resources are missing. If we address these challenges, then surely we will be able to improve safety and safety culture will follow naturally.
