Dr Axel Ros, MD and Ms Berit Axelsson from Sweden presented an interesting seminar on Qulturum, Improvement and Patient Safety hub in Region Jönköping County, Sweden.  We thank them for taking the time to visit us.

 

ABSTRACT

Qulturum is the improvement and innovation Centre in Region Jönköping County in Sweden. More than 20 years of experience of organizational learning has shown the importance of learning and continuous improvement in service and processes. We have found that the concept of clinical microsystems is most important for individual patient and system outcome.

The Patient Safety work has mainly been based on classic “Safety I thinking”. We are now in the process of adding “Safety II thinking”, resilience and person-centered care to the Patient safety work and at the same time research that development.

The presentation will cover both experiences from our improvement work and our resilience engineering efforts.
