Winners - Patient Safety Innovation of the Year

The Intelligent Intermittent Auscultation (IIA) in Labour elearning programme won the Patient Safety Innovation of the Year Award at this year’s HSJ Patient Safety Awards.

The programme also received a highly commended in the Patient Safety Education and Training category.

IIA aims to improve safety for mothers and babies in low risk labour and birth by improving the knowledge, skills and confidence of midwives to undertake the monitoring of a baby’s heartbeat in an intelligent manner.

The programme was developed in collaboration with Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Academic Health Science Network and University of Oxford’s OxSTaR centre.

Judges comments, at the Patient Safety Virtual Awards 2020, included: “This winning innovation has the potential to positively impact a significant number of individuals across the country, with clear benefits to both staff and patient outcomes.

“It is already starting to become best practice and is clearly outstanding work that has already been well received by users and associated stakeholders. The project leads demonstrated a thirst for expansion and wider sharing of the benefits of the project.”
