Patient safety (ISREE)

The Improving Safety and Reducing Error in Endoscopy (ISREE) strategy seeks to promote learning from medical errors and patient safety incidents. Medical errors and patient safety incidents remain largely unreported and unregulated at a national level. As patient safety remains at the core of JAG's mission to improve endoscopy quality across the UK, JAG convened a workshop in January 2018 to discuss a new initiative: ISREE- Improving Safety and Reducing Error in Endoscopy.

ISREE was developed from the premise that to make GI 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.

August 2019: a mugful of coffee ground vomit 

September 2019: going down the rabbit hole
