Patient Safety Incident Reporting Principles

The Pharmacy Voice Patient Safety Group has used input from colleagues at our Patient Safety Forum held in November 2015, in addition to responses to our safety culture survey, to help shape a set of core incident reporting principles.

The Patient Safety Group believes that all community pharmacy team members will be able to sign up to and embed these principles in their incident reporting and learning procedures.

These principles form one piece of work which the community pharmacy Medication Safety Officers (MSOs) are doing to help fulfil their duty in increasing reporting and improving learning from incidents across their own organisations and for the pharmacies they represent.
