Patient safety (ISREE)

The JAG safety (previously ISREE) initiative promotes learning from medical errors and patient safety incidents. 

This initiative was developed from the premise that to make endoscopy services safer, we need to better understand, record, and draw on patient safety incidents as opportunities for learning.

Learning from endoscopy patient safety incidents: case of the month

Each month JAG publishes a case of the month highlighting a real life clinical scenario which has impacted patient safety. Case studies are contributed by JAG leads and endoscopy services across the UK and are designed to provide a opportunity for discussion and to share learning. 

Read our case studies below:

November 2019: forget me not
