Improving patient safety through education and training

Education and training can help to create a working healthcare environment where staff can learn from errors and patients are at the centre of care.

We have written a summary of Health Education England's report on improving patient safety which covers:

  • Learning from patient safety data and good practice
  • Ensuring robust evaluations of education and training
  • Supporting learners and staff to raise and respond to concerns
  • Increasing opportunities for inter-professional learning

Virtual College have worked with NHS England to develop the National Patient Safety Suite, a suite of online training compromising of 17 e-learning courses including Safe Use of Insulin. To find out more, click here.
