1 Prospective Risk Assessment in a Mental Heath Trust A Study About Ways to Improve the Quality of Care in Mental Health Services

2 This research is a CLAHRC fellows project and the fellow is Dr Jenny Spencer. The Project PI is Dr Terry Dickerson, Assistant Director of the University of Cambridge Engineering Design Centre. The project Sponsor is Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) through the NIHR CLAHRC for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

3 What We Did Aim Test whether two methods for prospectively identifying risk could be efficaciously adapted to a mental health environment. Goal 1. Verify and validate the use of these tools in a mental health setting. 2. Ideally, improve patient safety and the quality of clinical care in mental health settings. Outcome measures Primary – Comparison of managerial Prospective Hazards Analysis and clinical staff Quality Assurance Data Collection results. Secondary – Change in Patient Safety Culture using MAPSAF. Change in the number and severity of reported near misses and SUIs.

6 The Challenges We Faced Project size and goals (? too big) Project Set up (1 year) Ethics approval, Sponsorship, Peer review, Indemnity/Insurance, Grant Contracts, Feasibility, Commercial charges, Service Support Costs, Identification of PI, Letters of access/Honorary Research contracts Service provider buy-in Staff engagement Changes initiated by other people

7 What We Learned Results: Problem classification

8 What We Learned Results: PHA vs QADC concerns

11 Conclusion The success of the project is still being assessed Use of the PHA tools revealed differences in safety concerns between management and staff Management concerns primarily revolved around staffing issues Frontline staff concerns included staffing issues and other issues such equipment management Culture assessment data revealed Concerns around patient and staff safety Team safety was rated higher than organisational safety We plan to compare PHA results with trust safety data
