The Innovation Agency leads the Patient Safety Collaborative for the North West Coast.
We also support our partners with local programmes of work to improve patient safety which include: Stroke prevention and atrial fibrillation; transfer of care around medicines; transformation; ESCAPE-Pain and the Anticipatory Care Calendar.
Many of the national innovation programmes we support with our fellow AHSNs are aimed at improving patient safety. And we offer opportunities for improvement and learning to support the adoption and spread of innovations.
This is to raise awareness of the relevance and impact of culture on safety while building the capability to support culture change; developing these conditions will enable organisations to nurture and develop a culture that allows safety to flourish.
This is to provide a high-quality health care experience for all women, babies and families across maternity care settings in England by improving safety and reducing unwarranted variation in care.
This is to focus on reducing avoidable harm and enhancing the outcomes and experience of deteriorating patients across England. This will be achieved by improving the reliability of how deterioration is recognised, delivering a consistent treatment response and ensuring communication with patients, their families and carers and between professionals is effective through the use of clear and common language.
