Summary of driver:

This report is based on a survey of NHS trusts and foundation trusts carried out by NHS Providers in 2017. Consisting of qualitative interviews and a roundtable event with frontline leaders and national stakeholders, the survey showed that leadership vacancies are widespread and that a culture of blaming individuals for failure is making leadership roles less attractive. The report also highlights the widespread challenges in meeting financial and performance targets as demands on services continue to increase. The challenges facing leaders of NHS trusts have changed and there is now a greater emphasis placed on working collaboratively as part of more integrated health and care systems.

Evidence Bite – Pressure ulcers and moisture lesions

An evidence summary inspired by safety discussions held at the Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust’s Safety Summit

Pressure ulcers (also known as pressure sores or bedsores) are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue, primarily caused by prolonged pressure on the skin. They can happen to anyone, but usually affect people confined to bed or who sit in a chair or wheelchair for long periods of time.

“The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) and Pan Pacific Pressure Injury Alliance (PPPIA) defined moisture lesions as a separate category; while acknowledging moisture damage can contribute to the formation of pressure ulcers”

Evidence Bites: Technology on ward rounds

An evidence summary inspired by safety discussions held at the Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust’s Safety Summit

Why are ward rounds a patient safety concern? Ward rounds are complex clinical activities, critical to providing high quality, safe care for patients in a timely, relevant manner. They provide an opportunity for the multidisciplinary team to come together to review a patient’s condition and develop a co-ordinated plan of care, while facilitating full engagement of the patient and/or carers in making shared decisions about care.
