New resource to introduce and improve situation awareness in hospitals is now available on the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health’s website.
This free, online resource pack aims to improve communication, build a safety-based culture and deliver better health outcomes for children and young people.
It includes informative presentations and useful tools with worked examples in six areas.
- Quality improvement
- Patient safety culture
- Structured communication
- Recognising deterioration
- The ‘huddle’
- Evaluation and spread
The resource pack has been developed as part of the final phase of the College’s flagship quality improvement programme, Situation Awareness for Everyone (S.A.F.E).
