In 2018, SIM was selected for national scaling and spread across the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs).

The aim of this study, published in Human Factors journal, was to examine the effects of interruptions and retention interval on prospective memory for deferred tasks in simulated air traffic control. This can be translated into a healthcare environment.
Difficult to know where to start with this blog. Like the rest of the world, I’m anxious.
We don’t know what is happening, we have not experienced anything like this before.
When COVID-19 first arrived in late February (it felt like it snuck up on us, but I’m not sure that is the case), there was talk about some people having to work from home. This really suited me as I could easily do this in my role at Patient Safety Learning and it would mean I would be around more for my two boys.

59.7% think their organisation treats staff who are involved in an error, near miss or incident fairly. This is a 1 percentage point improvement since 2018 (58.3%) and continues a positive trend since 2015 (52.2%).
71.1% think their organisation takes action to ensure that reported errors, near misses or incidents do not happen again.
73.8 think their organisation acts on concerns raised by patients / service users (2018: 73.4%).

I was employed as a healthcare assistant in a care home, where I worked for about three months. During this time, I found out that patient safety and quality of care were undermined by healthcare assistants, and the management and the nurses did not seem to realise it. Examples included:

When asked for more gloves, the manager would check the last time they took a box of gloves and would question what they had done with the last ones they collected. In order to save the gloves, carers used one
Social normalisation of deviance means that people within the organisation become so much accustomed to a deviant behaviour that they don’t consider it as deviant, despite the fact they exceed their own rules for the elementary safety.
People grow more accustomed to the deviant behaviour the more it occurs . To people outside of the organisation, the activities seem deviant; however, people within the organisation do not recognise the deviance because it is seen as a normal occurrence. In hindsight, people within the organisation realise that their seemingly normal behaviour was deviant.
Topics include human factors, learning from deaths, neonatal and maternal patient safety, patient safety in primary care, medicines safety, safety in social care and patient engagement.
