We all expect our healthcare to be safe, but mistakes can happen that may put patients at unnecessary risk.
This is the focus of the Safe Care Steering Group overseeing a James Lind Alliance priority setting partnership about safe care for adults with complex health needs, who have more than one condition or illness, or who need care from different teams and/or some care to be provided in their home.
On behalf of the Allied Health Professions Federation, Dr Jo Watson, RCOT’s Assistant Director – Education and Research, is part of this Steering Group. The aim of the partnership is to scope priorities in regards to safety and getting patients, carer, public and healthcare staff voices heard.
To this objective, the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre invites you to tell us about your concerns and which questions you would like to see answered through future research.
Please fill out this short survey which has been designed for patients, the public, carers and healthcare staff, via:
Or if you would prefer a paper copy of the survey and envelope to be sent to you or have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7594 3149.
Feel free to answer the questions as an individual or as a group with a specific interest in the area.
The questions which are raised will be ranked through a further survey to identify those which are the highest priority for future research. The organisation running the survey, the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre, will publicise the results to research funders and will aim to undertake research in some of the areas prioritised.
Please visit this website for more details.
The survey closes on at the end of February 2018.
