AHSNs working for a safer future

Two reports highlighting the patient safety work of Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) and the Patient Safety Collaboratives (PSCs) they host have been published by the AHSN Network.

‘Patient safety in partnership: Our plan for a safer future 2019-2025’ has been developed to support the NHS Patient Safety Strategy published in July, and details how AHSNs will work more closely with health and care organisations to improve safety both in hospitals and community-based services, such as care homes.
Over 30 good-practice case studies of their work in the community have also been collated in a report, ‘Improving safety in care homes’. They include case studies in medicines safety, dementia, monitoring and screening, and workforce development.

Together, AHSNs and PSCs are showing how they can make a significant contribution to the NHS Patient Safety Strategy, through the PSCs’ work supporting the delivery of the National Patient Safety Improvement Programme and the AHSNs’ focus on accelerating innovation.
