Patient Safety provides information and resources to support health care workers with experience at all levels to develop their knowledge and understanding of patient safety issues.
Three 'Quality Ambitions' (Person-Centred, Safe and Effective) provide the focus for everything NHSScotland does in its aim to deliver the best quality healthcare to the people of Scotland and, through this, make NHSScotland a world leader in healthcare quality.
The vast majority of health care workers are hard-working, dedicated professionals who go to work with the intention of delivering high quality, safe care to their patients.
In Patient Safety you will find:
- Background information on patient safety and its importance in healthcare improvement
- Tools and techniques for checking safety issues, implementing care practices and dealing with incidents
- Educational resources including publications, websites, initiatives and training offered by NHS Education for Scotland
The NES Patient Safety Multi-Disciplinary Group (PSMG) commissioned a stakeholder consultation, the results of which highlighted the critical importance of continuing education and training in patient safety.
