“Examine the history behind staff and patient safety attitudes in the literature”
Nurses and those working in healthcare work hard to keep patients safe – sometimes at the sacrifice of their own safety. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been a stark reminder of the impact staff safety can have on patient outcomes.
This webinar will cover the history behind the push for patient safety, the relationship between staff safety measures and patient outcomes, and what practical actions can be taken by clinicians and healthcare organisations to improve safety for both staff and patients.
In this session you will:
- Examine the history behind staff and patient safety attitudes in the literature
- Understand how staff and patient safety is linked, and why staff safety has been traditionally ignored
- Review occupational safety hazards in healthcare and evidence-based methods for reducing them.
- Explore how clinical practice improvements can be made to ensure staff and patients are safe.
