Patient Safety Improvement Group
29-30 November 2017 - Brisbane
Meeting Code HRT1718
Members of the Patient Safety Improvement Group meet annually to share ideas and innovations that focus on improving the safety and quality of care within their health services. They monitor progress against the Health Roundtable Patient Safety Checklist and share information on the latest patient safety and quality initiatives.
Safe and reliable person centred care requires a culture of safety where leaders drive effective teamwork. There needs to be a visible process of continuous learning creating reliable standards, measurement and transparency.
At the workshop members will share experiences and information on implementing innovative and effective practices and review results from the Patient Safety report that is provided 6-monthly.
In 2016 a new format for the patient safety reports was presented that allowed the group members to compare with peers and all hospitals in The Roundtable. The example above shows the risk adjusted SMR for acute myocardial infarction.
The report has been streamlined to include the data, raw and risk adjusted, as well as the two year rolling trend analysis on the same page.
Episode viewers, above, allow you to review an individual patient's episode history to share insights with your clinical teams.
