Abstract:
Near misses are important events in everyday clinical practice that are associated with patient care vulnerabilities and recovery patterns. Describing processes that interrupt the trajectory toward undesirable outcomes can identify contributing factors affecting care processes and mitigating strategies in the mental health practice setting that may contribute to safer care. The mental health sector has been under represented in patient safety and near miss research. This study replicates an earlier study elicited from the acute care context. The design is a two-phased, mixed method descriptive study involving three regional tertiary care mental health organizations. Phase I utilizes a qualitative design obtaining focus group data from health care professionals and consumers that will define and describe what constitutes and contributes to near miss occurrences and what is needed to ensure safer processes of care in this setting. Phase II involves a pre-post quantitative design and qualitative focus group method to evaluate health professionals' experiences associated with implementation of evidence based near miss intervention(s). Phase 1 results will be reported. Overall results obtained from this study are expected to influence the current patient safety agenda by introducing common nomenclature for mental health settings and initial strategies for achieving safer practice.
