This website provides a broad range of resources relating to the effective use of emergency manuals to enhance patient safety. Emergency manuals are increasingly being used in a wide range of clinical settings, along with other forms of ‘cognitive aid’ such as checklists.
This handbook provides detailed guidance on the range of duties of care owed by healthcare workers to patients - particularly with regard to patient safety. It also importantly examines the responsibilities of healthcare organisations in supporting their staff in meeting these duties.
This NPSA training resource pack provides detailed and practical training to support healthcare workers to identify circumstances and situations in which risks to patient safety are heightened and patient safety incidents are likely to occur.
