Health Education England has published the first NHS-wide Patient Safety Syllabus which applies to all NHS employees and will result in all NHS employees receiving enhanced patient safety training.

Written by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and commissioned by HEE the new National Patient Safety Syllabus outlines a new approach to patient safety emphasising a proactive approach to identifying risks to safe care while also including systems thinking and human factors.

The level one and two NHS Patient Safety Syllabus training programme is now available to complete on the e-Learning for Healthcare website.

Note: This online training is currently only open to those who have an NHS or Open Athens email account.
People with email addresses ending .ac.uk will  be able to access the training in the near future.
