Outcome: safety

Safety as a healthcare outcome

  • You could be providing health and care and yet fail to provide safety
  • Safety is an outcome different from health, thus:
    • safety needs to be managed independently
    • safety needs to be planned for independently
    • safety needs to be trained for independently
  • Expect errors to happen, but have strategies in place:
    • to capture them before they do any harm
    • to mitigate harm when errors cannot be captured in time
    • to learn from the process
