Evidence has shown that interventions designed to improve health care outcomes can too often result in patient harm. We need to ensure that the health care systems we practice within are designed to reduce and prevent clinical incidents from occurring. By doing so we further enable our staff to provide high quality care in a safe clinical environment.
WA Health staff work in a culture of ‘no blame’ and this is evidenced by the number of clinical incidents that are reported and investigated each year so that lessons can be learnt.
