Root Cause Analysis Training in the UK, Mainland Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa
Mainly people are treated safely and successfully in the NHS. However, it is important that lessons are learnt when things do go wrong. We need to understand what has happened, how to ensure that this does not happen in the future. Root Cause Analysis provides us with the structure, process and language to do this.
Root Cause Analysis is often associated with safety, and in the case of healthcare this is usually patient safety. However, problems and issues may occur across all functional areas of healthcare – procurement, quality management, maintenance, staff safety, ICT and in all the multitude of other functions that make up a healthcare service. Root Cause Analysis is a process that can be used in all of these and is used to identify areas for change and to develop recommendations which ultimately will deliver safer care for our patients.
One of the most common complaints made by healthcare staff that attend our courses is incident reports lack consistency. Other challenges which are identified are those are associated with forming and leading the investigation team; gathering and analysing supporting evidence; and formulating and implementing service improvement.
