Advancing Patient Safety


Your job is to lead your organisation's patient safety efforts. You have ways to monitor and investigate harm to patients. You have data. You've put an action plan into place.

So, why aren't you seeing results? The situation may not be getting worse, but your data is frustratingly stable. You're not seeing the reductions in harm from falls, VTEs, CA-UTIs, pressure ulcers, or infections you expected. You're getting pressure from above you and your staff is suffering from burnout.

Everyone is trying their best, but patients are still experiencing unnecessary harm. You know that continually investigating and re-investigating case-by-case won't get you the insights necessary to guide fundamental changes, but what's the alternative?

If you're looking for a different approach, consider the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's (IHI's) three-day Leading Patient Safety: United Kingdom programme. It offers practical and scientific methods to create a whole-system approach to eliminating harm.

What You'll Learn

By participating in IHI's Leading Patient Safety programme, you'll learn:

  • How broken systems and punitive work cultures undermine patient safety and job satisfaction
  • To use a proven diagnostic tool to understand your system's strengths and opportunities for improvement
  • To create action plans that get sustainable results and a measurement strategy designed for learning, not judgment
  • To practice and encourage the behaviours that support the development of a culture of improvement
See the program's agenda to learn more.​

What You'll Walk Away With

  • Design a strategic patient safety improvement plan tailored to your specific initiative
  • Assess your organization’s current state through the Framework for Safe, Effective and Reliable Care
