    There is a growing momentum around the world to foster greater opportunities for the involvement of mental health service users in their care and treatment planning. In-principle support for this aim is widespread across mental healthcare professionals. Yet, progress in mental health services towards this objective has lagged in practice. Francis et al. conducted a systematic review of quantitative, qualitative and mixed-method research on interventions to improve opportunities for the involvement of mental healthcare service users in treatment planning, to understand the current research evidence and the barriers to implementation. Overarching barriers to shared and supported decision-making in mental health treatment planning were: (1) Organisational (resource limitations, culture barriers, risk management priorities and structure); (2) Process (lack of knowledge, time constraints, health-related concerns, problems completing and using plans); and (3) Relationship barriers (fear and distrust for both service users and clinicians). On the basis of the barriers identified, recommendations are made to enable the implementation of new policies and programmes, the designing of new tools and for clinicians seeking to practice shared and supported decision-making in the healthcare they offer.

    This two-day King's Fund conference aims to explore how the current strain on services makes listening to people more difficult but even more important, at a time when public satisfaction with the NHS is at an all-time low. Join us to hear about how you can make sure building in the user voice is routine and core to the business of the health and care system, not just ‘a nice to have’. Conference sessions will: discuss how the NHS and social care cannot deliver quality unless listening to patients and carers, and acting on their feedback, lies at the heart of its culture.   provide learning on how to listen well and what meaningful engagement with people and communities looks like. Gain insight into the findings from the Fund’s project on understanding integration with the HOPE (Heads of Patient Experience) network by working with six sites on an action learning piece. Learn about how health and social care decision-makers cannot overcome challenges and answer long-term questions alone - such as how the system will address the deep inequalities and how it can adapt to provide the joined-up, efficient care that people want and gives them more control – public input is crucial. Join peers to share learning on grasping this opportunity to finish building a culture where listening to patients, service-users, and communities is everyone's business.   Register

    Healthcare is advancing at a quicker rate than ever before. With the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI), you can now get a cancerous mole diagnosed with a mobile device. The reliance on technology has never so great. With technology predicted to replace as much as 80 per cent of a physician’s everyday routine, we must question what the new threats posed to patient safety are? This article, written by CFC Underwriting, explains some of the pitfalls of the new technology. CFC is a specialist insurance provider.

    Researchers have shown that people often miss the occurrence of an unexpected yet salient event if they are engaged in a different task, a phenomenon known as inattentional blindness. However, demonstrations of inattentional blindness have typically involved naive observers engaged in an unfamiliar task. What about expert searchers who have spent years honing their ability to detect small abnormalities in specific types of images? In this research paper published in Physiological Science, Wolfe et al. asked 24 radiologists to perform a familiar lung-nodule detection task. A gorilla, 48 times the size of the average nodule, was inserted in the last case that was presented. Eighty-three percent of the radiologists did not see the gorilla. Eye tracking revealed that the majority of those who missed the gorilla looked directly at its location. Thus, even expert searchers, operating in their domain of expertise, are vulnerable to inattentional blindness.

    This report, by Anna Starling for The Health Foundation, identifies additional implications of the new care models programme for local health and social care leaders embarking on cross-organisational change. The new care models programme is a large-scale experiment by the NHS’s national bodies to develop ‘major new care models’ that can be replicated across England. Introduced by the NHS’s Five year forward view in 2014 and launched in 2015, it aims to break down the traditional barriers between health and care organisations to establish more personalised and coordinated health services for patients. The programme aims to reconcile ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approaches to change management. To do this, 50 local vanguard sites were selected to develop new care models, supported by a national programme led by NHS England over 3 years.

    This National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) guide provides a detailed illustration of how principles of safe design can be applied to widely used medical technologies. It focuses on the design of electronic infusion devices, such as infusion pumps and syringe drivers. There a wide variety of infusion device designs in use in healthcare. This document provides practical guidance and examples of best practice in the design of infusion devices, as well as a guide for those involved in the purchase and procurement of these devices.

    This joint project with East Berkshire CCG was highlighted within the AKI Programme within Oxford Patient Safety Collaborative. Fewer residents are suffering urinary tract infections (UTIs) following the introduction of a hydration programme in care homes. UTIs are closely associated with dehydration. This project was designed to encourage residents to drink more fluids with the aim that this would lead to fewer UTIs requiring medication or hospital admission. This approach involved introducing structured drinks rounds seven times a day, designed and delivered by care home staff. The initial focus was in four care homes which had higher than average UTI admission to hospital rates.
