Deteriorating Patient Safety Network

Would you like to collaborate across the South West to identify, learn and share best practice for managing deterioration?

Join us at our next Deteriorating Patient Safety Network (DPSN) Workshop on 4th March 2022

Be inspired – come and listen to our inspirational speakers!

Make connections and build new relationships – get to know others in the Deteriorating Patient Safety Network in our ‘chat over a coffee’ sessions.

Learn more about our work to improve patient safety – find out more about the focus of the regional patient safety collaborative run by the South West Academic Health Science Network, our focus and our principles

Network co-production – have the opportunity to co-design our DPSN in a targeted brainstorming session. Let’s work together to build a network which focuses on our collective priorities, which builds and harnesses our skills and experiences and improves patient safety

In our DPSN sessions throughout 2021 we had identified the challenges in managing deterioration that you are facing within your settings and determined priorities for future work. The following are key themes that have come out of these sessions. Why not join us to continue exploring these themes?

• Improving staff confidence and skills to prevent, identify and escalate deterioration

• Improving response times so that the patient/person receives the right care in the right place at the right time

• Having sufficient staffing levels in all settings to maximize patient safety

• Reducing inequalities – access to care no matter who you are

• Communicating effectively so you are heard

Who is invited?

Our DPSN workshops are open to those who work in integrated care system organisations across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, who are involved in patient deterioration in non-care home settings:

• Commissioners

• County Council Leads

• Domiciliary care providers – care @ home including care for people with a learning disability

• Mental health settings

• Prisons

• Primary care

• Ambulance Services

• Informal carers

• Acute Trusts 

• Community Hospitals and nursing teams delivering care in community settings

About the Deteriorating Patient Safety Network

The Deteriorating Patient Safety Network (DPSN) is hosted by the South West AHSN and supports its members to plan, deliver and monitor deteriorating patient and resident projects.

Projects in the region have a variety of settings and support patient pathway collaboration between partners from acute and community hospitals, community services in the home, primary care services, care homes, clinical commissioning groups, councils and other partners across the region.

Quarterly DPSN events bring teams together to collectively learn from good practice, share resources and support each other on their improvement journey. Bespoke quality improvement methodology and culture training assist the teams to collectively sculpt solutions to common problems and create a thriving and active regional support network.
