Based on our original research and policy document A Blueprint for Action (2018), Patient Safety Learning has identified seven Foundations for patient safety:
Each of these Foundations is supported by specific patient safety Aims, totalling 26 across all seven.
Underpinning each Foundation and Aim, there are a series of clearly defined Standards that explain what an organisation must do to deliver against their specific requirements. For each Standard, there are details of evidence-based outputs, outcomes and behaviours required to enable an organisation to demonstrate achievement against those Standards.
In total, there are 144 identified Standards. These represent the core for any organisational safety improvement strategy and delivery plan.
Below is an example of the Standards, taken from our 'What Good Looks Like' manual:
