Rationale:
Examining case-studies of real-life quality failings allows for an in-depth exploration as to the causes which led to the event. Case studies provide an opportunity to reflect on the event to identify lessons learnt and develop recommendations to prevent similar future quality failings.
Description: For this task, students will be asked to critically examine a real-life patient safety failing. Students will conduct an examination of a patient safety failing to identify important insights into key elements of patient safety, identify lessons learnt and to provide recommendations for system improvements and present their findings in a ’brief’ of the event. Further students should provide recommendations as to quality and safety principles so far in the subject could be applied to prevent similar incidents in future practice. Criteria:
- Clear and concise summary of the quality and safety failing with nil inconsistencies and identifying all key points.
