Risk management for primary care

In-house risk assessments, whole practice workshops, plus convenient online tools to help you quickly highlight areas of risk and develop effective solutions.

Learning From Events

With more than 300 million patients consulting with primary care teams annually it’s unfortunately inevitable that a proportion will suffer some form of unintentional harm, mostly of low to moderate severity. Research has suggested that around 1-2% of consultations in primary care are associated with an adverse event. The cost of harm – to patients, to those working in healthcare, and to productivity – is significant.

Creating a positive safety culture can be achieved by avoiding complacency and encouraging vigilance towards patient safety. Such a culture means that people feel comfortable discussing errors, and leaders and frontline staff take shared responsibility for delivering safer care. This in-house workshop explores important issues and skills in relation to learning from patient safety incidents and will provide guidance on how to hold a significant event meeting.

Suitable for 
The whole practice team – General Practitioners, Nurse Prescribers, Practice Nurses and Administration Staff.
