Government response to the Francis Report March 26 2013 (from the BBC News website)
In the aftermath of the Francis Report into the failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust it is clear that Human Factors are at the core of Patient Safety Performance. Care and compassion are primary features of our training programmes. Our programmes are tailor made to maximise learning to motivate and re-energise teams to achieve their highest potential performance.
The key issues are training and education so the team members understand their own frailties and can adapt to safe research-proven skills and practical tools.
A Safe, Just, Open reporting Culture is crucial and Atrainability can train and support the total team from workplace to Board level.
We at Atrainability are dedicated to High Quality, More Efficient, More Productive, Resilient teams and individuals. We are passionate about sustainable Safety and bring innovative practical well proven tools to achieve it.
At the heart of problems in any teams lie breakdowns in non-technical team skills. These fall into two categories - social and cognitive. Social skills are Leadership and Cooperation and Management. Cognitive skills are Situation Awareness, Decision Making and Risk Assessment. All of these are underpinned by effective Communication skills and have observable objective behaviours, indicating effective or ineffective team working.
Within less resilient teams there are frequently failures to accept collective responsibility and an observable tendency to allow the Leader or another individual to take the blame.
Atrainability is the Premier provider of Human Factors training in the UK. Founded in continuing research with the University of Oxford and developed over 20 years in aviation and across the spectrum of healthcare this training and coaching makes teams safer, more productive and happier resulting in fewer errors, rule violations and reduced staff turnover.
