We are holding our first Patient Safety Day event on Wednesday 27 April 2022.
Improving patient safety is a key priority for us as an organisation as well as a national priority across the NHS as a whole. Implementation of the new National Patient Safety Strategy means that all healthcare organisations will need to work in new and different ways. How patient safety incidents are investigated, how learning is implemented, sustained and shared, patient involvement and how we promote and embed a culture that supports learning and improvement, are all crucial areas both for us as an organisation and across the NHS as a whole.
In recent months, the Patient Safety team has worked with a number of colleagues to plan this virtual event. The day will be an opportunity for colleagues to come together and hear from a range of external speakers to share experience, learning and insight relating to patient safety improvement. We will also be extending the invite to all our colleagues within Bay Health and Care Partners.
Talks and sessions will include hearing from national experts in areas such as human factors, psychological safety, improving safety for invasive procedures and learning from excellence.
More information will be shared with all colleagues via internal communications messages and on the staff intranet.
