Virtual, Online

Follow the conference on Twitter #EmbeddingPSIRF

The Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) was published on 16th August 2022 and replaces the Serious incident Framework.

This national conference looks at the practicalities of Serious Incident Investigation and how this has changed with the publication of PSIRF. The conference will also update delegates on best practice in serious incident investigation under PSIRF and ensuring the focus is on safety actions for improvement. There will also be an extended focus on learning, including mortality governance and learning from deaths ensuring insight and investigation findings lead to improvement. The conference will include updates from PSIRF early adopter sites.

The conference update delegates on the new Patient Safety Incident Response Standards and how to review your current practice against these standards.

”The new Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) has also landed well. Since its publication, NHS trusts and ICBs have been preparing to introduce the framework in their organisations, ahead of it replacing the current Serious Incident Framework from the Autumn. We have anecdotal indications of early adopters saying it has helped improve safety cultures, identify more effective risk reduction strategies, and enhance harm reduction.”

Aidan Fowler, National Director of Patient Safety in England and a Deputy Chief Medical Officer Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) 20th June 2023

“Early adopters of the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF) are reporting improved safety cultures, identification of more effective risk reduction strategies and early signs of harm reduction, due to their revised approach.”
