6th Annual Quality & Patient Safety Meeting in Beaumont Hospital (May 19th 2017)

Thursday June 01, 2017

The 6th Annual Quality & Patient Safety meeting took place in Beaumont Hospital last Thurs May 19th. Organised by IQS/Clinical Governance, the meeting provided an opportunity for staff to engage, discuss and learn how the hospital is committed to improving the quality of care delivered to our patients.

The theme of this years meeting was "Translating Vision into Action".

The keynote speakers were excellent - Ms. Barbara Wren, Consultant Psychologist at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust gave a thought provoking talk on the use of narrative approaches in QI: linking staff and patient experience to manage risk and quality in Healthcare. Dr. Gavin Lavery, Consultant in Critical Care Medicine at Belfast HSE Trust delivered an engaging talk about measurement for improvement.

The meeting then progressed to oral sessions from multiple disciplines representing many areas and demonstrating the wide range of quality improvement activities taking place across departments and directorates in the Hospital. Posters were presented throughout the morning.

A sincere thank you to all those who contributed to the organisation and planning of the event and to all those who showcased their work on the day. It truly demonstrated the tremendous work being done across the hospital in continuing to improve the care that is delivered to our patients.
