Lead Partner: Danish Society for Patient Safety (DSPS), Denmark
The WP4 work is based on the assumption that continuous safety improvement could be effectively pursued by promoting actions aimed at identifying innovative safe practices, and enabling/accelerating their diffusion to the community of healthcare professionals. Thus this WP is concerned with identifying, assessing, and making visible good clinical practices in Patient Safety [Safe Clinical Practices (SCPs)], and setting up exchange mechanisms around SCPs. The exchange mechanisms will provide health care professionals the opportunity to increase their knowledge and develop their skills in SCPs to enhance Patient Safety.
The focus of WP4 is on the local clinical level, where patients and health professionals interact. The WP is concerned with SCPs within the health care institution (e.g. within the hospital, general or dental practice).
- To establish transferable SCPs in PS.
- To share SCPs through an interactive web tool.
- To build a mechanism to share these SCPs involving Member States (MS) and relevant stakeholders.
- Report of good clinical practices/solutions in PS (No.1)
