Patient Safety Academy Anniversary
The Patient Safety Academy is celebrating their one year anniversary, having been in operation for just over a year now. In this time we've been making progress on our senior leader workstream. Within our surgical workstreams, a number of improvement projects are well underway. We've also been preparing for our next two workstreams (mental health and primary care) which will be commencing towards the second half of this year. We have promoted our work at various events and conferences, such as EHF 2016, and we've been collaborating with others in the field on patient safety.
The PSA have been working closely with the Patient Safety Collaborative, with whom we will be linked under the Patient Safety Theme at the Oxford AHSN. Core members of the PSA will support the programme themes which emerge from this collaborative. The PSA have also been involved in shaping national policy through their representation at Health Education England's Learning to be Safer expert group.
A full update on our work throughout the year can be found in our newsletter here.
