The issue of patient safety is – rightly – never far from the headlines, and that includes in the midst of a pandemic. Despite scandals over quality of care in recent years, it is clear that embedding a strong culture of safety throughout the health service is a constant and continuing mission.

Earlier this year, for instance, it was announced that Bill Kirkup would be leading an inquiry into maternity services at East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust – five years after he investigated such services at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay FT.

What does continue to evolve, however, are digital solutions intended to bolster patient safety. Can such solutions help support a strong safety culture? What are the challenges in using technology in this context? How might they be overcome? In what specific ways can emerging digital solutions potentially help clinicians improve patient safety?

This HSJ webinar, run in association with Capsule Technologies, will bring together a small panel to discuss these important issues.
