Patient Safety Learning Awards

The Patient Safety Learning Awards is one of the ways Patient Safety Learning is improving shared learning. Shared learning is one of our six foundations of safer care for patients, along with leadership, professionalising patient safety, patient engagement, data and insight, and culture. You can find out more about each of these six foundations in our latest report, A Blueprint for Action.

Last year, we had seven categories, six of which were based on each of our foundations of safer care. The seventh award, the Patient Safety Learning Award, was an overall prize for the individual, team or organisation who our judges believed went above and beyond. Winners received a trophy, complimentary tickets to our conference and cash towards visiting a destination where they could learn more about patient safety.

We look forward to learning more about the visits our winners went on as part of their prize, and will share this information with you on the hub at a later stage.
