Abstract: This explorative study investigated Safety-I and Safety-II elements in six focus groups with experienced staff involved in the patient discharge process from a community perspective. The elements explored included defining a good discharge, potential errors, influencing factors, weak signals, learning opportunities, and elements that assisted in achieving a successful task outcome. Key findings included identifying person-, task-, and organization related examples that promote a good discharge. The weak signals and elements aiding success were categorised using the SEIPS 2.0 model.
Description: This is a conference paper.
Sponsor: The project was commissioned as a result of a successful joint bid for funding by Health Partnerships, a Division within Nottinghamshire Health Care NHS Trust and Loughborough University Design School.
