SAPPHIRE (Social Science APPlied to Healthcare Improvement REsearch)

Making social science matter in the world of healthcare

SAPPHIRE aims to improve the quality and safety of care in the NHS and globally.

Our research addresses difficult questions: Which interventions to improve healthcare work and why? How can we enable healthcare staff to speak up when they have concerns about patient safety? What can we learn by studying examples of success in improving patient safety and quality of care? How can we deliver high-quality care that’s truly patient-centered? How can we know when care is safe? How can we use social and behavioural science to develop and evaluate interventions to help people manage long-term conditions?

Find out how SAPPHIRE uses social science theory and methods to make healthcare as safe and effective as possible.
