Improving the Safety of Patients in England A promise to learn – a commitment to act August 2013
Berwick report Consultant paediatrician Former President and CEO of IHI Administrator for centres of Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) Asked by PM as an independent perspective, how ‘to make zero harm a reality in our NHS’ Delivered August 2013
Berwick report - recommendations 1.Embrace ethic of learning 2.Quality of care, in particular patient safety, a top priority 3.Patients and their carers should be present, powerful and involved at all levels of HCOs 4.Sufficient staff 5.Quality and patient safety science and practice part of lifelong education of all HCPs
Berwick report - recommendations 6.NHS as a learning organisation with support for change 7.Transparency should be complete, timely and unequivocally shared with the public 8.All organisations should seek out patient and carer voice 9.Regulatory systems should be simple and clear, avoiding diffusion of responsibility 10.Responsive regulation of organisations
What does this actually mean for me? What was the last audit/project you did? Why did you do it? Who benefitted most – the patient…the department…you? How do you know this? If you had asked the patients on your ward what you should do as a project – what might they have said? If you had done this, would have made things better for your patients?
Keogh Review Feb 2013 -> July 2013 Review hospitals with persistently high mortality rates post Francis Report 14 trust reviewed – Hard data and soft intelligence – MDT planned and unannounced visits – Listening – focus group/community – Risk summit – coordinated plan of action
Mortality rate Is it of any use? What is the correct measurement? – HSMR – Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratio Hospital deaths 56 diagnosis groups (80% of deaths) Allowances for palliative care If observed = (standardised) expected deaths = 100 – SHMI – Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicator 30 days of discharge All diagnosis groups (100% deaths) No allowance for palliative care Ratio of observed death compared to expected (risk-adjusted model) deaths. Expected deaths = 1
8 Key Ambitions 1.Reduce mortality not debate statistics 2.Better data availability for QI and public 3.Patient/carers/public equal partners 4.Patient and clinicians have confidence CQC 5.Isolated hospitals will be a thing of the past 6.Appropriate nursing staffing levels and skill mix 7.Junior doctors clinical leaders – TODAY 8.Happy engaged staff vital for patient care
