Why an LLR Patient Safety Community of Practice?

The aim of the Patient Safety Community of Practice is to support working to improve patient safety across health services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. This is being done in partnership with Better Care Together and LIIPS, and picks up on the ideas generated at the Learning From Incidents Workshop in May 2016. Details of the workshop can be found here.

Launch of the LLR Patient Safety Community of Practice:

On 26 April 2017 the Patient Safety Community of Practice Launch Event took place and 31 healthcare professionals came together to discuss what a Community of Practice might look like and explore how it could help them to improve patient safety across organisations within LLR. Dr. Chris Williams led the afternoon which started with a video message from Prof. Graham Martin. The presentation slides which are available can be accessed via the programme. For an overview of the event, please see the storify here.

What is a Community of Practice?

Communities of practice are ‘groups of people who share a concern or passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.’ (Wenger-Trayer,2015). This means a practical, ‘grass roots’ group which we hope will grow online and through formal and informal meetings and events. We hope that the community of practice will share knowledge, skills, resources and professional links and help to strengthen learning from incidents from a front-line perspective. Being a member does not need to take up a lot of time – you might just want to receive the e-bulletin which will give you updates and invitations. For further details please see the Launch event resources below.
