THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be an opportunity for stakeholders and policymakers to discuss the next steps for improving patient safety in the NHS.
It takes places as the NHS becomes the first healthcare system in the world to publish the numbers of avoidable deaths in order to share lessons between trusts and help learn from failings.
Delegates will assess the potential impact of the Health Service Safety Investigations Bill, which plans to give the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch legal powers to investigate serious patient safety incidents.
They will also consider further action that might be taken, as NHS Providers warn of the need for an investment boost for the NHS in order to manage risk this winter.
Sessions will discuss priorities for NHS Improvement’s Patient Safety Incident Management System (PSIMS), as it looks to replace the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) and improve the reporting of incidents, in order to support safety improvement.
Attendees will also examine progress on implementing the goals set out in NHS England’s Next steps on the Five Year Forward View - including maternity safety, preventing healthcare acquired infections and promoting a learning culture within the NHS, as well as the next steps for improving regulation and inspections.
