  • Quality in Australian Healthcare Study
      • Impact of Error:
      • Up to 16% of admissions associated with an adverse event
      • 51% considered preventable
      • 18% cause death or disability
      • The number of iatrogenic deaths exceeds the road toll
    Cost associated with medical errors is $ 2 Billion per year (pre 2000) Action : Reporting of Sentinel Events Root Cause Analysis/ AIMS analysis Patient Safety Report Safety and Quality Projects – Clinical Practice Improvement Human Factors Engineering SA S&Q Council Action Areas Commission Priorities
  • Medical Errors Still Claiming Many Lives
            • … little progress towards the goal
            • Leape and Berwick, JAMA May 2005
  • Why Teamwork and Communication?
      • Clinical handover is a high risk scenario for patient safety. Dangers include discontinuity of care, adverse events and legal claims of malpractice (Wong et al, 2008).
      • Survey of Australian doctors revealed that 95% believed that there were no formal or set procedures for handover (Bomba and Praska, 2005).
      • An Australian study of emergency department handover found that in 15.4% of cases, not all required information was transferred, resulting in adverse events (Ye et al, 2007).
      • A detailed analysis of nursing handover revealed that some handovers promote confusion and did not assist in patient care (Sexton et al, 2004).
      • Handover is among the most common cause of malpractice claims in the USA, especially among trainees, accounting for 20% of cases (Singh et al, 2007).
  • Sentinel Events in Victoria – contributing factors from RCA
      • Communication between the team e.g. clinical handover
      • Communication between staff and patient/family
      • Cultural diversity (involvement of interpreters) 1
    Communication was cited in sentinel events RCA reports as a major contributing factor from 2002/03 (16% of reports) to 2008/09 (20% of reports) and related to: 1. www.health.vic.gov.au/clinrisk/downloads/sentinel_event_program_0809.pdf (accessed 27/9/2010)
