New e-learning launched on principles of safety and risk

Frankie, 14 October 2016

NHS Digital, in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH), has developed an e-learning programme on safety, risk management and risk mitigation.

The e-learning resource is designed to support health and social care organisations and manufacturers of Health IT products with training in the principles of safety, risk management and risk mitigation, all within the context of Health IT by implementing the safety standards, SCCI 0129 and SCCI 0160.

The safety standards provide a framework that supports a systematic approach to clinical risk management during the development and use of Health IT systems. The standards establish the need for organisations to establish a clinical safety case to support the development and use of such systems.

The core course comprise seven sessions and one assessment session as follows:

  • Session 1 – Introduction to Clinical Safety and Safety Standards
  • Session 2 – Clinical Risk Management System
  • Session 3 – Clinical Risk Management Process: Activities
  • Session 4 – Clinical Risk Management Process: Deliverables
  • Session 5 – Hazard Assessment
  • Session 6 – Deployment, Use and Decommissioning
  • Session 7 – Clinical Safety Incidents
  • Session 8 – Assessment Module

In addition there are two ‘best practice guidelines’ sessions that are designed for health and social care organisations as follows:

  • Session 1 – Telehealth
  • Session 2 – Safety Critical Systems

The e-learning is supplemented by a one day class-based course which will provide the knowledge and tools to support compliance with the safety standards and empower clinical safety officers to sign off and approve safety documentation.
