Turn up the Volume! 2. Conference and workshop – Central London, Friday 26th May
A focus on actions.
‘Making a measurable contribution to a just culture in healthcare.’
The emphasis will be on transforming ideas into action, and moving beyond stereotypes.
We will be launching a new initiative and developing the action plan at this event.
‘Speaking truth unto power has long been discouraged in the NHS and punishment is usually personally catastrophic. We must create space for these truths and support our colleagues in their journey. To punish people that speak for the good of the NHS and social care is ‘unacceptable’.
Aim and objectives:
To promote best practice in patient safety, by welcoming people who raise concerns, learning and acting appropriately on the information.
DISCOVER: How to make care safer through listening openly to staff concerns, and examples of best practices
LEARN: Through allowing everyone to contribute to an online resource, suggest and implement actions
SHARE: By supporting and encouraging each other to share best practice locally and nationally, by identifying and putting in place practical ways to do this
UNDERSTAND: Through allowing everyone from all areas of the NHS (staff, patients, carers, relatives), at all levels to reflect upon good practice and identify ways to take this forward and commit to action
IMPROVE: Enabling all to be able to articulate and promote the relationship between learning oranisations and patient safety, in plain language, and to share this message
We aim to provide a safe space where all involved can listen and learn from each other. Giving food for thought and ongoing reflection.
This is an interactive and inclusive listening exercise, where we plan to help everyone use the experiences of all those affected by cultures of fear to drive forward real change.
This a ‘bootstrap’ event, no fancy gimmicks. Put together by people who care about the subject, many of whom are giving up their own time to be involved.
