Patient Safety Training

Patient Safety Training

Ongoing work within the Patient Safety Group has resulted in a new e-learning resource on Human Factors available summer 2016. Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors, this resource will offer NHS and Social Care staff in Scotland an overview of this discipline and its contribution to enhanced well-being and performance. 

½ day Face to Face workshops covering areas such as “Human Factors Awareness”, “Why things go wrong (and right) in complex systems” and “How to respond when things go wrong in complex systems” will be available from June 16 onwards to consolidate and develop knowledge around Patient Safety further.Additional learning options will become available during 2016/2017. Train the Trainer/Master class sessions will also be available to help those directly involved in the education of patient safety discuss the subject in more depth and share educational strategies with colleagues

• A prototype ‘train-the-trainers’ pack (based on NES enhanced Significant Event Analysis work) has been developed  build capacity and capability across NHS Scotland.  This work is also contributing to related national programmes on the Reporting and Management of Adverse Events and the Duty of Candour.
