Patient Safety Champions are specialty specific trainees who work to support CT1 level trainees, in all specialties, to identify and develop a patient safety project in the workplace.
Champions are usually senior trainees with an interest in Patient Safety. Opportunities exist for trainees to join the faculty and access faculty development days to increase their knowledge and skills in human factors and quality improvement.
The Champions support the delivery of the specialty specific afternoon sessions of the one-day introduction and educational Patient Safety First Training Day, which all Wessex trainees must attend as part of the NHSE Wessex Patient Safety First Programme. Champions also mentor trainees through the web-based educational tool.
The champions are supported by Dr Sarah Noble, Patient Safety First Lead – to contact Sarah, please email email@example.com
