Joint PSTRC symposium
About this event
This joint symposium, hosted by the three NIHR-funded Patient Safety Translational Research Centres (PSTRCs) in Greater Manchester, Yorkshire & Humber, and Imperial College London, will explore developments in patient safety research now and in future. The event will be held on 16th June 2022 and will focus on three themes: Insight, Involvement and Improvement.
- Our 'Insight' theme will explore new approaches from the PSTRCs which will inform future research and address patient safety priorities.
- In our 'Improvement' theme, we will share novel solutions and developments that transform the delivery of safer care.
- 'Involvement' will discuss examples of successfully involving diverse groups of patients/public and health and care stakeholders in patient safety research.
The symposium will be chaired by Professor Rhona Flin, Emeritus Professor at the University of Aberdeen and Professor of Industrial Psychology at Robert Gordon University.
A keynote introduction will be provided by Dr Frances Healey, Former Deputy Director of Patient Safety, NHS England and NHS Improvement.
Each theme will then feature speakers across all three PSTRCs, as well as a panel discussion featuring the centre as well as session leads.
Who is the symposium for?
Researchers specialising in patient safety, as well as health and social care staff and leaders, will find this symposium useful. We'll be sharing learning on patient safety priorities for the future, which will be based around the NHS England/Improvement Patient Safety Strategy.
