Measurement and Monitoring of Safety in Canada: CPSI Safety Improvement Project - An 18 month learning collaborative
What is happening?
On October 23, 2018 CPSI launched a new safety improvement project. A learning collaborative approach with expert faculty and mentoring over 18 months. Based upon the
Measurement and Monitoring of Safety Framework (2013). This follows on the success of a 12-month demonstration project that was led by Dr. Ross Baker at the University of Toronto. During this new Safety Improvement Project, participating teams will be supported in rewiring their thinking on patient safety and work within their organization to foster and promote a new approach to safety.
"The framework for Measurement and Monitoring Safety helps people rethink their understanding of safety in their own clinical environment," says Dr. Baker. "What we saw during the demonstration project is that staff were really engaged by this idea that they can have an active role in promoting and maintaining safety."
"The concept of utilizing this modernized approach to learning collaboratives, namely, Safety Improvement Projects, combines all of the successful principles within the field of quality improvement with the addition of knowledge translation and implementation science principles, thus enabling organizations to understand their readiness to implement and sustain change" says Maryanne D'Arpino Senior Director, CPSI.
What is the Measurement Monitoring of Safety Framework (MMSF)?
MMSF consists of five dimensions that prompt you with a series of key questions to conceptually address any problem you have in safety.
