The Manchester Patient Safety Framework (MaPSaF) from the NPSA is a tool to help NHS organisations and healthcare teams assess their progress in developing a safety culture.

The MaPSaF can be used to:

  • facilitate reflection on patient safety culture
  • stimulate discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of the patient safety culture
  • reveal any differences in perception between staff groups
  • help understand how a more mature safety culture might look
  • help evaluate any specific intervention needed to change the patient safety culture.
