This national conference looks at the practicalities of Serious Incident Investigation and Learning from Deaths in Mental Health Services. The event will look at the development and implementation of the New Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (previously known as the Serious Incident Framework). The PSIRF now been published for the early adopter sites, the final version is due in Spring 2022, and is due to be fully introduced in all organisations during 2022, the conference will examine how the new framework will fit with the Royal College of Psychiatrists Care Review Tool for mortality review.
The principles of the Royal College of Psychiatrists mortality review process are:
- All deaths are appropriately reviewed to assess if there is potential for organisational learning.
- The deaths selected for further review have a structured judgement review completed.
- The review of deaths is undertaken in a spirit of openness and transparency, and organisational learning, rather than blame.
- The review of deaths will involve families and those close to the deceased, where possible.
“Learning from the early adopters will inform the final version of the PSIRF which we anticipate will be published in Spring 2022. We anticipate that at that point, all other organisations will be encouraged to begin the transition to the PSIRF, with an expectation that all parts of the NHS in England will be using the new framework by Autumn 2022.”
