Patient safety

The JAG safety 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.

Listen to the new Frontline Gastroenterology podcast here.

Associate editor Dr James Maurice interviews Dr Srivathsan Ravindran, JAG research fellow. They talk about developing a culture of improving patient safety in endoscopy, and how the 'Case of the Month' model can be used to create valuable learning opportunities for endoscopy teams following patient safety incidents. 

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.
