Join the 10th annual patient safety students and trainees day to explore current approaches to patient safety from multiple perspectives.
This year's conference takes the form of a half-day webinar and aims to improve awareness of safety and communication in the workplace, as well as promoting the undertaking of quality improvement projects and audits.
This webinar will provide practical tips and advice for medical students, junior doctors and other allied health professionals.
The sessions will cover:
- How to recognise the relevance of human factors in your day-to-day practice and performance, including flattening of hierarchies and developing a just culture
- The importance of human factors in patient safety, including high-pressure scenarios and comparison to other industries
- Medico-legal issues in patient safety that may commonly be encountered by junior doctors, and learnings from previous cases
- How to drive Quality Improvement initiatives from leaders in the field, as well as sharing your own QI/safety projects in poster/podium format
Abstract submissions of no more than 250 words that define a problem in the hospital or community setting related to patient safety and describe a solution for the problem stated. Submissions can be based on audits, quality improvement projects or prototypes of new devices or software that may be useful in patient safety.
Shortlisted submissions will be considered for both oral and poster presentations. Abstracts that rate highly on originality, clarity, show significant improvement in patient safety and impact at a national or international level, will have a higher likelihood of selection for oral presentations.
Submission deadline: Sunday 31 January 2021
Open to: All students and trainees
- Oral presentation: A year's RSM membership
- Poster presentation: £50
A CPD certificate with 2 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
