Why is it important for NCPS members to report patient safety events?
There is no shared learning if there are no reported patient safety events!
Reporting safety events and near events on a regular basis maintains the reporting relationship that is required for members to receive the confidentiality and privilege protections offered by NCPS.
Reporting safety events and near events allows NCPS to conduct meaningful data aggregation and analysis.
Analysis of reported events within our robust database allows NCPS to identify trends and patterns in various types of events and levels of harm (where applicable).
NCPS develops educational materials to share with its members based on reported events to assist members with driving quality improvement initiatives.
