Investigating Incidents and The Duty of Candour
Tuesday 28 April 2015
Hallam Conference Centre, London
In the wake of the Francis Inquiry into the failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust the Department of Health has introduced a contractual duty of candour that requires NHS and Foundation trust staff to be open and honest with patients and their families about patient safety incidents.
The Statutory Duty of Candour came into force on the 27th November 2014. “The first is the Statutory Duty of Candour, which places a legal duty on hospital, community and mental health trusts to inform patients of mistakes which have led to significant harm or death.” November 2014
This new duty emphasises the need for patient safety incidents to be investigated using a robust methodology; for investigation reports to be evidentially sound, accessible and focused on producing actionable and reasonable recommendations.
This training day will equip delegates with a proven methodology and a highly-regarded report structure that will help with the investigation of incidents and the production of reports.
