A blog from Penny Pereira explaining the development of a driver diagram to supporting healthcare organisations to implement the recommendations of the Berwick Review of Patient Safety.
The driver diagram was the product of work done by 200 participants from around the world at the BMJ/IHI International Forum in Paris in 2014. The work supports organisations to develop an organisational strategy for patient safety by asking the following questions: How will you listen to the views of patients and staff? How will you demonstrate leadership behaviours? How will you build your capacity and capability for improving safety? How will you improve the measurement and transparency around safety? How will you improve your organisation’s learning around safety?
