World Innovation Summit for Health

A Healthier World Through Global Collaboration

Leading Health Systems Network

LHSN is a collaborative network of healthcare leaders and organisations dedicated to improving health care delivery by effectively and efficiently using available resources. LHSN is an initiative of WISH in partnership with Imperial College in London. Our network brings together the best ideas, models of care, and strategies to drive sustained improvment, and connects healthcare leaders to a like-minded community of peers that share the same goals and challengers.

We are concurrently running a webinar series to complement our analytical work. These web-hosted sessions range from high-level perspectives on patient safety to examples of specific patient safety initiatives, hosted by those who led the change on the ground. Past speakers include Dr. Donald Berwick, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement and Dr. Peter Pronovost, Director of the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality at Johns Hopkins University.

Strategies for reducing restraints and seclusions in mental health care settings

May 25, 2016

Physical and mechanical restraints and seclusions are utilized in child and adolescent psychiatric treatment venues as a means of managing aggressive and self-injurious behaviors. These procedures can be considered by youth as aversive and traumatizing, and in worst case scenarios, deaths have been reported.

In this webinar Joshua Symons - leader of the Big Data and Analytical Unit within the Centre for Health Policy at Imperial College London - provides an introduction to the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) in the UK, as well as an overview of CareReport, an alternative system for patient safety reporting and learning.

Strategies for reducing restraints and seclusions in mental health care settings

Physical and mechanical restraints and seclusions are utilized in child and adolescent psychiatric treatment venues as a means of managing aggressive and self-injurious behaviors. These procedures can be considered by youth as aversive and traumatizing, and in worst case scenarios, deaths have been reported. This webinar will reflect on core strategies used to prevent and reduce restraints and seclusions, leading to improved safety and provision of trauma informed care.

An integrated systems approach to patient safety incident reporting and learning

April 11, 2016

This webinar will provide an introduction to the National Reporting and Learning System in the UK, as well as an overview of CareReport – an alternative system for patient safety reporting and learning – and how it addresses the current issues within the NRLS. CareReport takes an integrated systems approach to reporting and learning, and shows how leveraging modern technologies and human behavioural insights help address a real world need.

The future of incident reporting - Making the most of staff-reported data

The future of incident reporting - Making the most of staff-reported data

The NRLS Research and Development Programme was a three year project conducted by Imperial College London to explore new techniques for analysing NRLS data and to synthesise practical recommendations for NRLS improvement.

In this Webinar, we will explain the complicated landscape surrounding the NRLS and incident reporting, the research and development programme findings and our innovative solutions for improving the use of incident reports. Ultimately we will present a case for change for the future of incident reporting and a blueprint for making that change.
