It was a pleasure to host Dr Carsten Engel, ISQua Expert and world expert in accreditaton and external evaluation, for a live webinar on Accreditation as a driver of improvement and knowledge transfer.
As we look to the future, the healthcare industry is at a critical juncture. The rapid development of theories on how to deliver safe, person-centred care means that we can no longer rely on the excuse that “healthcare is different” from other industries and cannot be reliable and safe. People are now demanding safety and reliability in the care they receive, and they want to be treated as people who happen to be ill rather than as a number or a disease.
As a quality and safety champion within my organization, I am the clinical lead for an initiative to improve the safety culture within our critical care department. Creating psychological safety within a team empowers staff to speak up and promotes the delivery of safer care to patients.
