The Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) is the NHS’s approach to developing and maintaining effective systems and processes for responding to patient safety incidents and ensuring learning and improvement in patient safety.

The new Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) has also landed well. Since its publication, NHS trusts and ICBs have been preparing to introduce the framework in their organisations, ahead of it replacing the current Serious Incident Framework from the Autumn. We have anecdotal indications of early adopters saying it has helped improve safety cultures, identify more effective risk reduction strategies, and enhance harm reduction.”

This national conference looks at the practicalities of Patient Safety Incident Investigation and Learning from Deaths in Mental Health Services and implementation of the New Patient Safety Incident Response Framework. The conference will also update delegates on best current practice in patient safety incident investigation and learning, including mortality governance and learning from deaths.

There will be an extended focus on investigation findings lead to change and improvement, and updates from PSIRF early adopter sites in mental health. The conference will also examine how the new framework will fit with the Royal College of Psychiatrists Care Review Tool for mortality review.

Early adopters of the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) are reporting improved safety cultures, identification of more effective risk reduction strategies and early signs of harm reduction, due to their revised approach.”
