the hub: a platform to share learning for patient safety
In our report, A Blueprint for Action, Patient Safety Learning identified six evidence-based foundations of safer care.
For each foundation, the report proposes actions for safer care. A key action for one foundation is to develop a platform to help people share learning for patient safety.
We are delighted to announce that we have developed this platform. It is called the hub.
the hub is an online platform and community for people to share learning about patient safety problems, experiences and solutions. Designed with input from patient safety professionals, clinicians and patients, the hub offers a powerful combination of tools, resources, stories, ideas, case studies and good practice to anyone who wants to make care safer for patients.
Its communities of interest give people a safe place to discuss patient safety issues or concerns. It enables people to come together in a collaborative environment to build on improvements and adapt solutions for local implementation.
Patient Safety Learning will contribute some content, but our aspiration is that most content will come from users. We are encouraging users to propose questions, post news, make suggestions, create tools, offer feedback and tell their stories.
We launched the hub at the Patient Safety Congress in July 2019. We want to encourage everyone to sign up and begin using it. It’s currently in beta, so your participation and feedback will be hugely valuable to us as we prepare for the full launch at the Patient Safety Learning Annual Conference on 2 October.
the hub is free of charge for use by everyone: clinicians, patients, managers, policy makers, regulators, researchers and members of the public.
Will you join us in our aim to improve patient safety by sharing your learning, learning from others and collaborating with others in health and care?
Register for the hub now to join this growing community and play your part in improving shared learning.
