Herewith displayed Patient Safety Practices (PSPs) have been REPORTED either through an online Patient Safety Practices Exchange Survey – WP4, or derive from a LITERATURE REVIEW performed by clinical experts.
All PSPs are split in two different types:
- Clinical Practice (CP)
An implemented standard operating procedure or practice in health care and within the institution, where the patient is directly affected.
- Clinical Risk Management Practice (CRMP)
A standard operating procedure, policy, strategy or practice in health care and within the institution, where the aim is to reach an optimal balance of risk, benefits and costs. The patient is indirectly affected.
Furthermore, each of the reported PSP has been reviewed by a PaSQ National Contact Point (NCP), and classified according to defined Classification of a PSP.
Details are elaborated in the PaSQ Action Plan for the EMs. And, the EMs are to be carried out from August 2013 to April 2015.
Herewith displayed Good Organisational Practices (GOPs) have been reported by EU Member States, Regions and PaSQ EU Stakeholders through the online Good Organisational Practices Exchange Survey – WP6. Each of the reported GOP has been reviewed by a PaSQ National Contact Point (NCP) and classified according to defined classification of GOP and PSP.
The PSPs as well as the GOP form the basis for the PaSQ Exchange Mechanisms (EMs), which is an instrument for sharing, learning, and exchanging information, knowledge, skills and experiences related to Good Practices. It is a basic rule that, in order to be eligible as a PaSQ EM, an event should address at least one reported Good Practice, and should involve at least two PaSQ Partners from two different Member States.
