      ObjectivesCommunicating with parents about adverse birth outcomes is challenging. We sought to describe attitudes and experiences of parents and providers regarding communication about adverse newborn birth events.MethodsFrom 2011–2012, we conducted semi-structured in-depth interviews with parents who believed they had experienced an adverse birth-related neonatal outcome and focus groups with healthcare providers who have communicated with parents about adverse newborn birth events from three geographically diverse US academic medical centers. We conducted qualitative thematic analysis to identify key themes.ResultsParents and providers described unique communication challenges around adverse neonatal outcomes in six categories: 1) High expectations for a positive delivery experience and the view that birth is a life event, not a medical encounter; 2) Powerful emotions associated with birth, amplified when an adverse event occurs; 3) Rapid changes when expectations for a normal birth take a sudden negative turn; 4) Family involvement adding complexity to communication; 5) Multiple patients and providers complicating communication dynamics with inter-professional teams seeking to coordinate information and care; and, 6) Concerns about litigation surrounding the birth experience. Strategies to educate parents and enhance communication were identified by both parents and providers.ConclusionBoth parents and providers experience – and may suffer as a result of – communication challenges following adverse birth events affecting the newborn. Training and resources for this care environment are needed to meet parental, extended family, and provider expectations for communication when these events occur.

      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Volume 26, Issue 5, Page 207-213, October 2021.
      The purpose of this article is to describe the development and evaluation of an 11-session patient safety and quality improvement curriculum for first-year child and adolescent psychiatry fellows. The curriculum uses the Learning from Defects tool which teaches fellows how to conduct an analysis of a safety event they have encountered in their clinical work. The Learning from Defects tool provides a structured approach to address adverse clinical events and identify system failures by providing a framework to determine what happened, examine why it happened, implement interventions to reduce the probability that a similar event will recur, and evaluate whether the interventions were effective. Six fellows participated in the curriculum during their protected didactics time. Curriculum evaluation included an assessment of fellows’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes toward patient safety and quality improvement before and immediately after the curriculum, and 6-months later. Immediately upon completion of the curriculum, fellows reported more confidence and comfort with patient safety and quality improvement-related tasks in their clinical practice. Fellows reported a positive perception of the curriculum related to their learning objectives and utility in the future career. At the 6-month follow-up, the majority of fellows continued to work on their Learning from Defects project and endorsed the intention to participate in patient safety and quality improvement work in the future. This study provides preliminary support for implementing this patient safety and quality improvement curriculum utilizing the Learning from Defects tool in child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship programs. The Learning from Defects tool offers a practical way to teach patient safety and quality improvement skills that potentially can be generalized to future clinical work.

      BackgroundPrescribing errors are common, occurring in 7% of in-patient medication orders in UK hospitals. Foundation Year 1 (F1) doctors have reported a lack of feedback on prescribing as a cause of errors.AimTo evaluate the effect of implementing a shared learning intervention to Foundation Year 1 doctors on their prescribing errors.MethodsA shared learning intervention, ‘good prescribing tip’ emails, were designed and sent fortnightly to F1s to share feedback about common/serious prescribing errors occurring in the hospital. Ward pharmacists identified prescribing errors in newly prescribed in-patient and discharge medication orders for 2 weeks pre- and post-intervention during Winter/Spring 2017. The prevalence of prescribing errors was compared pre- and post-intervention using statistical analysis.ResultsOverall, there was a statistically significant reduction (p

      ImportanceUp to 17% of diagnostic test results are missed, lost or ignored despite conventional fixes such as electronic physician reminders – naïvely, patients assume: ‘No-News-is-Good-News’. These lapses can result in poor outcomes, complications, and even death. In response, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)-led physician quality reporting system measure#265 emphasizes prevention. This study aims to improve the timely review of results through increasing patient engagement.Design and ParticipantsNinety patients undergoing diagnostic testing were included in this Internal Review Board (IRB)-approved study. Two groups, group-A (patients with medical chart access through our EHR, n = 40); and group-B (controls, n = 50) were included. Group-A was reminded via written AVS and EHR portal messages to ask about their test results at their next appointment. Controls were sent no reminders, mimicking the status- quo.Main OutcomesAt subsequent visits whether patients ‘asked’ or ‘did not ask’ about their results was recorded and analyzed. Study group participants were also surveyed on their preferences for reminder communication.ResultsPatients that were sent reminders were up to twenty times more likely to ask their provider regarding their test results than the control group (p

      ObjectivesUniversity Hospitals Birmingham's (UHB) Foundation Doctors should log clinical incidents via the Trust's incident reporting system. Anecdotal reports suggest under-reporting is commonplace. It is therefore important to identify the proportion of Foundation Year 1 (FY1s) who witnessed but did not report incidents and identify and weigh perceived barriers to reporting. We can then suggest strategies to address these barriers and repeat our data collection.MethodologyWe performed an analysis of anonymised data from the Trust's Datix Incident Reporting system alongside an anonymised survey to determine the proportion of FY1s witnessing reportable clinical incidents, and the proportion successfully reporting an incident in the 2017/18 academic year. The survey also gathered data on FY1 perceptions of barriers to reporting. We went on to discuss our results with UHB management and suggested several strategies to improve reporting, prior to repeating data collection for the 2019–20 academic year.Results36.4% FY1 doctors surveyed in 2017–18 reported witnessing at least one clinical incident that they did not report. 37.0% FY1 doctors surveyed in 2019–20 reported the same. Respondents felt time taken to complete forms and system complexity were the key barriers to reporting.ConclusionResults show that over a third of FY1s at UHB had witnessed but not reported at least one clinical incident each year. The evidence-based strategies suggested to the trust in 2018 and 2020 included FY1 education on incident reporting, early senior clinician involvement in the reporting pathway, and a streamlined reporting system integrated with existing infrastructure. These have not been implemented.

      ObjectiveCommunication and Resolution Programs (CRP) were developed to equip healthcare organizations with tools to respond when physical and psychological harm occurs. Our objective was to assess development of empathic behaviors and communication skills through CRP training based upon the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) CANDOR toolkit to assess the ability to develop and improve empathic behaviors and communication skills.MethodsThe Jefferson Scale of Empathy, the CANDOR Communication Assessment Questionnaire and a self-assessment were used pre- and post-intervention to analyze development of empathy, growth of communication, and improvement in confidence and knowledge through 6 h of virtual education over a six-week course.ResultsSelf-reported communication, confidence and knowledge improved with statistical significance and small to moderate effect size in both men and women. A statistically significant improvement of self-reported empathy scores t (22)  =  2.23, p  =  .037; (95% CI  =  0.41 to 11.5) for women only represented a small to moderate effect size (Cohen’s d  =  0.46). While there was no improvement in Cognitive Complexity, (Cohen’s d  =  0.065) mean pre-post .42 (SD  =  6.52); Message Design Logic improved with statistical significance in paired pre-and post-assessment (Z  =  -3.28, p  =  .001). Notably, previous attendance at CANDOR classes demonstrated no impact on improvement of scores.ConclusionsOur findings demonstrate improvement in self-reported empathy and communication skills through harm in healthcare response training. Healthcare organizations should carefully consider investing in CANDOR training for the benefit of patients, their families, and healthcare workforce members.

      BackgroundAdverse drug events (ADEs) are defined as any injuries due to medication use. We hypothesized that the incidences of ADEs and medication errors (MEs) could be associated with linguistic skills of pediatric patients.MethodsWe analyzed data from the Japan Adverse Drug Events study on pediatric inpatients. This study included inpatients aged one months and older and less than seven years old. We compared the primary outcome of ADEs and MEs between patients aged under three years and three years and older as children typically do not acquire sufficient linguistic skills until around three years of age.ResultsThis study included 639 patients; 412 (64%) patients aged under three years and 227 (36%) patients aged three years and older. We identified 241 ADEs in 639 patients; 152 ADEs among patients aged under three years (37 ADEs per 100 patients) and 89 ADEs among those aged three years and older (39 ADEs per 100 patients). ADEs among patients aged under three years were less likely to be found (49 ADEs) during their hospital stay than those aged three years and older (20 ADEs) (P = 0.02). Among 172 MEs identified in 639 patients, 25 MEs (15%) resulted in ADEs; 23 (92%) occurred to those aged under three years and two (8%) occurred to those aged three years and older (P = 0.0008).ConclusionADEs were less likely to be found and MEs resulted in ADEs more frequently in patients under three years old, and these differences could be explained by differences in their linguistic skill levels.

      Authors: Helen Elliott-Mainwaring
      Abstract: Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management, Ahead of Print.
      My experiences as a legitimate informal whistle-blower have afforded me an understanding of the dichotomy that is Trust allegiance and misplaced brand loyalty over and above both patient and staff safety, such that when poor care is spoken of as a potential or experienced from either angle, the general rule within healthcare management is not to acknowledge, reflect, mitigate and learn in order to improve, but instead to gaslight, deny and subordinate such that from a staff safety perspective they are caught between a rock and a hard place. This paper explores some of the opportunities which healthcare organizations could embrace to positively influence the effects of power and hierarchy on staff safety.AimsThis paper discusses the bigger picture of maternity services safety.MethodsThis is a discussion piece.FindingsFor some healthcare staff it is preferable to remain quiet, not rock the proverbial boat, and maintain deeply loyal allegiances to their employers over and above public protection. For others, the journey of honesty, integrity and tenacity carries a high price in terms of personal energy, health and financial compromise.ConclusionThis exploration into how power & hierarchy influence both staff and patient safety has identified and briefly explored some of the tensions created by misplaced brand loyalty inherent within healthcare institutions, and the legacy of harms resulting.
