Cause Mapping

Cause Mapping is a powerful tool used to understand how events of harm have occurred and to aid in the redesign of processes and systems so future similar events of harm are avoided.  A Cause Map provides a visual explanation of why an incident occurred. It connects individual cause-and-effect relationships to reveal the connection between causes and outcomes within a system. 

You will find the NCPS handout explaining how to construct a Cause-And-Effect Diagram and the template we use to create them.
