Safe Care for Pediatric Patients: A Scoping Review Across Multiple Health Care Settings:
PIPSQC is pleased to share the new publication in Clinical Pediatrics, entitled "Safe Care for Pediatric Patients: A Scoping Review Across Multiple Health Care Settings."
As outlined in the abstract, this scoping review identifies and describes the vulnerabilities of those aged 0 to 18 years to iatrogenic harm in various health care settings. Of note, "the most common issues were medication (189 studies, 48.7%) and general medical (81 studies, 20.9%) errors. Sixty studies (15.5%) evaluated or described patient safety interventions, 206 studies (53.1%) addressed health care systems and technologies, 17 studies (4.4%) addressed caregiver perspectives and 20 studies (5.2%) discussed analytic models for patient safety."
Using a Network Organisational Architecture to Support the Development of Learning Healthcare Systems:
PIPSQC is also pleased to highlight the new special article in BMJ Quality and Safety, entitled "Using a Network Organisational Architecture to Support the Development of Learning Healthcare Systems."
As outlined on AHRQ PSNet, this study describes "the development and implementation of a network organizational model for learning health care networks. The authors note that several organizations following such a model (e.g., the Solutions for Patient Safety Network) have been successful in improving patient outcomes. While the networks described focus on pediatric care, they suggest that the same principles and processes could be applied to improve outcomes for other populations."
