Posted on: May 24th, 2021 by Hannah Denness No Comments

A new Clinical Risk Management Training: Refresher session has been added to the Clinical Risk Management Training programme.

The session has been developed by the Clinical Safety Team at NHS Digital in partnership with Health Education England elearning for Healthcare,

It should only be undertaken if both of the following prerequisites have been completed:

  1. eLearning Clinical Risk Management Training: Core Module 01
  2. Attended the Foundation Course

This session has been designed to update Clinical Safety Officers and colleagues in supporting adherence to the DCB safety standards and to remain knowledgeable in the application of Clinical Risk Management (CRM) during the development, implementation and deployment of Health IT.

The session is based on a care scenario and will explore how to follow a CRM process by undertaking a series of activities and being able to list, develop and maintain safety documentation through a project’s life cycle. Particular attention will be given to accurate hazard identification & description and how to evidence effective mitigation from initiating to decommissioning Health IT systems.

There will be an assessment at the end of the session to confirm that learners have understood the CRM process and associated activities in line with the DCB standards.

More information, including access details, is available on the Clinical Risk Management programme page.

A series of new modules have been launched to support the Clinical Risk Management elearning programme. The modules have been created by NHS Digital’s Clinical Safety team and Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh).

The programme is designed to support health and social care organisations, as well as Health IT manufacturers with safety, risk management and risk mitigation training.

This is all delivered within the context of Health IT by implementing the safety standards, SCCI 0129 and SCCI 0160.

These safety standards bring clinical risk management and the need for clinical safety cases to the forefront of the development and use of Health IT systems.

Module 1 – ‘Clinical Risk Management Training’ comprises seven sessions and one assessment session.

Module 2 – The ‘Community of Interest’ has recently been added to the elearning programme and is an area where people can find knowledge and share good practice. This is aimed at individuals working within Health IT, including manufacturers and health organisations. The module comprises the following three sessions:

  • Session 1 – SMART
  • Session 2 – Apps and Wearables
  • Session 3 – Software as a Medical Device.

Module 3 – includes two best practice sessions on telehealth and safety critical systems. These sessions are designed for health and social care organisations.

The course is designed for clinical and non-clinical staff who need to gain an understanding of the clinical risk management activities undertaken during the design and/or implementation of a Health IT system to support the implementation of SCCI 0129 and 0160. This includes clinicians, managers, developers and testers.

The programme is available to access via the elfh Hub and the Electronic Staff Record.
