With the increase in patient incidents in Australia the Delivering Patient Safety training package is timely in its ability to effect and implement change, improve quality control measures and mitigate risk.
DELIVERING PATIENT SAFETY is a world first DVD and CD package bringing together international leaders and day-to-day practitioners of patient safety in a self-drive package for hospitals, medical schools and medical institutions that have the responsibility of removing the cause of error before there is harm to the patient.
DELIVERING PATIENT SAFETY addresses questions of change in practice, culture, management and systems that are fundamental to this concern.
Delivered by Professor James Reason, an internationally recognised expert in human error management, and other leading worldwide experts with frontline responsibilities, the program was developed for healthcare professionals with the responsibility of identifying and resolving the causes of error, preventing harm to the patient. It is designed for system wide use and can be used by the non-specialist.
Key Understandings and Actions
- The scale and urgency of the problem – very many institutions, and the people in them, are much more at risk than they need be.
- Error can be managed – just like any other critically important activity.
- Why things go wrong – the best people sometimes make the worst mistakes
- Error traps – the necessity of locating and removing the causes of error before they can harm the patients
- Culture – the need for a cultural health check. Initiatives will stall if culture remains unchanged.
- Feedback – to keep the system in touch with reality.
- A systematic approach – building Patient Safety initiatives at every level: the individual, the team, and the institution.

“The Delivering Patient Safety resource has complemented the learning outcomes for the subject NMIH308 Transition to Professional Practice where it has been extensively factored into the planning and delivery of this subject’s teaching sessions. This resource has provided invaluable learning opportunities for nursing students and staff alike as patient safety is a crucial and key element that features strongly in the Bachelor of Nursing program.”
