LHSN is a collaborative network of healthcare leaders and organisations dedicated to improving health care delivery by effectively and efficiently using available resources. LHSN is an initiative of WISH in partnership with Imperial College in London. Our network brings together the best ideas, models of care, and strategies to drive sustained improvment, and connects healthcare leaders to a like-minded community of peers that share the same goals and challengers.
We are concurrently running a webinar series to complement our analytical work. These web-hosted sessions range from high-level perspectives on patient safety to examples of specific patient safety initiatives, hosted by those who led the change on the ground. Past speakers include Dr. Donald Berwick, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement and Dr. Peter Pronovost, Director of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins University.
In this webinar, Dr. Geoff Ginsburg and Dr. Deepak Voora of the Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine at Duke University discuss how pharmacogenomics can influence the delivery of safe care.
Sign up to Safety is a national initiative aimed at helping NHS organisations create a positive, strong safety culture and provide care for their patients in the safest way possible. To date, over 380 organizations across England have signed up to the campaign. In this webinar, Dr. Suzette Woodward - National Director of Sign Up to Safety - provides an overview of the programme, discuss results to date, and outline future plans.
Physical and mechanical restraints and seclusions are utilized in child and adolescent psychiatric treatment venues as a means of managing aggressive and self-injurious behaviors. These procedures can be considered by youth as aversive and traumatizing, and in worst case scenarios, deaths have been reported.
In this webinar Joshua Symons - leader of the Big Data and Analytical Unit within the Centre for Health Policy at Imperial College London - provides an introduction to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) in the UK, as well as an overview of CareReport, an alternative system for patient safety reporting and learning.
In this webinar, Kelsey Flott and Erik Mayer explain the complicated landscape surrounding the NRLS and incident reporting, the research and development programme findings and innovative solutions for improving the use of incident reports.
In this webinar, Riccardo Chiarelli proposes creating and implementing a structured peer-to-peer review assessment model in health care, similar to that used in the nuclear power industry, to accelerate improvements in patient safety.
