The research study

Looking through a microscope at a broken eggRoot cause analysis (RCA) is a commonly used incident investigation method employed in the aftermath of adverse events in safety critical industries. It has shown potential in risk identification but it is unclear whether it leads to robust action plans and risk controls in a healthcare context.Much can be learnt about best practice from other safety critical industries in terms of generation and implementation of action plans following accident investigations.

This interview study is being conducted by researchers from the University of Leicester and is seeking answers to the following questions:

  1. How are action plans formulated and implemented following accident investigation in safety critical industries?
  2. How are action plans formulated and implemented following root cause analysis in healthcare?
  3. How can the generation and implementation of action plans following root cause analysis in healthcare be made more robust?

 

Who would we like to interview?

We would like to interview you if your professional role includes one of the following:

  1. Expert accident investigators from other safety critical industries (such as aviation, rail, defence, maritime, nuclear, etc).
  2. Healthcare professionals who conduct serious incident investigations.
  3. Individuals in clinical commissioning groups with responsibility for reviewing serious incident reports in healthcare.
  4. Academics who have previously published on accident investigation in safety critical industries and/or patient safety.

 

What would participating in the study involve?

The study will involve a one hour telephone interview, focusing on the generation and implementation of action plans following root cause analysis of serious incidents or accidents. The interviewer will be in a private room and the interviews will be digitally recorded and encrypted.The interview data will be stored securely and destroyed at the end of the study.
