Safer Care

Paediatric Safer Care

Providing safe, reliable care to babies and children is key to all staff working in paediatric services, whether this is in a local general hospital, a large teaching hospital or a specialist children’s hospital.

Paediatric Safer CareAs part of the Safer Care programme, we are working with doctors, nurses and pharmacists from across England to increase the capacity and capability of NHS staff to recognise harm and to introduce safety improvements which can be shown to reduce harm.

 

 

Tools

Trigger Tool Portal training 
Trigger Tool Portal training is provided in the Getting Started module of the Leading Improvement in Patient Safety (LIPS) programme. The LIPS programme guides organisations through a series of safety improvement modules that will develop the skills and confidence necessary to achieve sustained reductions in patient harm.   If you would like to register your interest in LIPS please email us.

Case Note Reviewer Kit

A case note reviewer kit  (containing training materials, reference papers, and a reviewer aide memoir) is provided free to each trust that participates in the LIPS programme and further copies will be available to purchase in the near future from this website.

Other Training Tool Portal training opportunities will be offered to paediatric networks through events hosted within Strategic Health Authority Areas. Click here for further information Trigger Tool Portal training events
