    Robert Barker, author of the book, 'The Time Based Organisation: Recreating and Transforming Existing Organisations', highlights how time-based analysis can be used in the NHS to transform the patient journey.

    Appropriate care escalation requires the detection and communication of in-hospital patient deterioration. Although deterioration in the ward environment is common, there continue to be patient deaths where problems escalating care have occurred. Learning from the everyday work of health care professionals (work-as-done) and identifying performance variability may provide a greater understanding of the escalation challenges and how they overcome these. The aims of this study from Ede et al. were to i) develop a representative model detailing escalation of care ii) identify performance variability that may negatively or positively affect this process and iii) examine linkages between steps in the escalation process.

    Walkthrough analysis is a structured approach to collecting and analysing information about a task or process or a future development (for example, designing a new protocol). It is used to help understand how work is performed and aims to close the gap between work as imagined and work as done to better support human performance. Walkthrough analysis is one of the tools included in the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF). This guide by NHS England provides information on how to carry out walkthrough analysis. It covers: Getting started System considerations Task and tool matrix View further PSIRF content and resources on the hub.

    How can your team improve decision-making and performance in an unpredictable world? The field of Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM) supports organisations in understanding and leveraging expertise. Over the past 40 years, NDM researchers and practitioners have helped clients achieve higher ROI, improve safety, and increase efficiency. In this presentation series captured from our 2022 NDMA Open House, you'll hear directly from leaders in the NDM field. They'll share a variety of key concepts, case studies, tools, and insights that you can use to improve how your team makes decisions—especially when stakes are high and conditions are uncertain.

    NHS hospital staff spend countless hours capturing data in electronic prescribing and medicines administration systems. Yet that data remains difficult to access and use to support patient care. This is a tremendous opportunity to improve patient safety, drive efficiencies and save time for frontline staff. I have just published a post about this challenge and Triscribe's solution. I would love to hear any comments or feedback on the topic... How could we use this information better? What are hospitals already doing? Where are the gaps? Thanks

    This commentary, published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), highlights the value of explicit inclusion of context in Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The author highlights how discussions of why decisions were made illustrate important relationships in elements of patient care than can often get lost in clinical notes.

    This case study, published in Safety Science, looks at aviation to illustrate the conflict, and double-binds, created as those in high-consequence industries negotiate the fluid lines of accountability relationship boundaries. This germane example is the crash of Swissair Flight 111, near Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1998. The paper offers dialogue to aid in understanding the influence accountability relationships have on safety, and how employee behavioural expectations shift in accordance. McCall and Prunchnicki propose that this examination will help redefine accountability boundaries that support a just culture within dynamic high-consequence industries.
