Training and Action for Patient Safety is a new training programme helping multi-professional clinical teams to develop innovative solutions to address common patient safety problems such as:
The programme runs over 20 weeks and involves attendance at an orientation meeting and three learning workshops (one full day and two half days). The programme is attended by up to 10 teams from different organisations across the local healthcare economy. Teams undertake a training module in patient safety, and then are supported to identify a local priority for patient safety, develop solutions and measure improvement.
The TAPS programme was designed by Bradford Institute for Health Research and the Improvement Foundation in collaboration with a panel of active clinicians who are experts in patient safety.
TAPS programmes have already taken place in Bradford, North Lincolnshire, Doncaster, Sheffield and Leeds. Current TAPS programmes are active in York and Hull. Another TAPS programme is planned for 2012/13. For further information or to express an interest please contact:
