Improving Patient Safety Conference: Putting Patients First
“We all understand that healthcare is a people business, and that with the very best intentions people will make mistakes. Improving safety is about reducing risk and minimising mistakes.” – NHS England
In May 2017, the CQC published The State of Care in NHS Acute Hospitals. While the regulator noted overall improvement in patient safety across the health services the report found that “some trusts have blind spots about the quality of care they are delivering… even in some trusts rated good overall”.
By reducing avoidable incidents such as falls and infections, NHS trusts can improve the patient experience and free up valuable resources. The majority of these breaches in safety can be avoided through strong leadership, effective systems and by creating a strong safety culture across hospitals, primary care and mental health services. According to the OECD, 10% of healthcare expenditure goes towards avoidable medical mistakes or to treating hospital acquired infections. With the cost of negligence claims against the NHS quadrupling in the last decade, there is a clear economic case for investing in patient safety.
Join us for the Innovations in Patient Safety Conference where expert speakers from across the NHS will explain how you can eliminate your organisation’s “safety blind spots”. See how new technology can improve patient safety, learn techniques for developing a safety culture and understand how to develop a patient centred approach to safety.
