The publication of the New Patient Safety Incident Response Framework in August 2022 has shifted the focus towards identifying and investigating patient safety incidents and events that have the greatest potential to lead to learning and improvement. This conference focuses on Patient Safety Learning – maximising learning and improvement from patient safety insight and events. The conference will support you to identify incidents and insight that has the greatest potential for improvement and use a range of system-based approaches for learning from patient safety incidents. The conference will also update delegates on the new Learn from patient safety events (LFPSE) service and how local incident reporting will adapt to this new system. The roles and competencies of the Learning Response Lead, and the practicalities of involving and engaging with patients to deliver continuous improvement will also be discussed. Finally the conference will share examples of Safety Actions & After Action Reviews which is recommended under the new framework.

PSIRF fundamentally shifts how the NHS responds to patient safety incidents for learning and improvement.

An organisation’s patient safety incident response plan should specify the methods it intends to use to maximise learning and improvement and how these will be applied to different patient safety incidents.
