    Hi The new Patient Safety Incident Response Framework is due for publication this month for early adopters and as 'introductory guidance' for everyone else: https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/about-new-patient-safety-incident-response-framework/ I wondered if there is anyone who is involved in an organisation that is an early adopter who can share what has happened so far and also would be willing to share any local learning as the new framework is implemented? Also, more generally wondered if anyone has any initial comments on the proposals which were mentioned in the NHS patient safety strategy and any things in particular which they think will bring benefit or could represent significant challenges or issues?

    Key points Audit measures practice against performance. The audit cycle involves five stages: preparing for audit; selecting criteria; measuring performance level; making improvements; sustaining improvements. Choose audit topics based on high risk, high volume, or high cost problems, or on national clinical audits, national service frameworks, or guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Derive standards from good quality guidelines. Use action plans to overcome the local barriers to change and identify those responsible for service improvement. Repeat the audit to find out whether improvements in care have been implemented after the first audit.

    In this book the authors set out two key areas for attention if audit is to play a part in bringing about real improvements in quality of care. First, efforts must be made to ensure that the NHS creates the local environment for audit. Second, the NHS needs to make sure that it uses audit methods that are most likely to lead to audit projects that result in real improvements.

    Key points This framework highlights the following five dimensions, which the authors believe should be included in any safety and monitoring approach in order to give a comprehensive and rounded picture of an organisation’s safety: Past harm: this encompasses both psychological and physical measures. Reliability: this is defined as ‘failure free operation over time’ and applies to measures of behaviour, processes and systems. Sensitivity to operations: the information and capacity to monitor safety on an hourly or daily basis. Anticipation and preparedness: the ability to anticipate, and be prepared for, problems. Integration and learning: the ability to respond to, and improve from, safety information.

    It has been a challenging year for the health and care sector, but the response to the COVID-19 pandemic has shown how technological innovation can bring about substantial improvement in efficiency of care. Join The King's Fund for this online event to learn about the proven benefits that technological solutions offer to complex problems, transforming the quality of care and patient experience for greater numbers of people. Using the orthopaedic pathway in Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust as a case study, it will explore in depth how the adoption and integration of technology can help NHS trusts deliver on elective surgeries that were postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
