About Patient Safety in Primary Care - A Research Priority Setting Partnership (PSP)
A big thank you to everyone who took part in our final prioritising workshop at the Manchester Museum on 16 March 2017, where the Top 10 primary care patient safety research priorities were agreed.
Visit the Top 10 page to see the priorities.
A paper on the Primary Care Patient Safety PSP has now been published - you can read the full paper online: Identifying primary care patient safety research priorities in the UK: a James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership
We have produced an infographic showing the process and the final Top 10 priorities, which can be viewed here.
How does the Patient Safety PSP work?
We set up a Steering Group who agreed the content and format of the priority setting survey. The survey was circulated as widely as possible amongst patients, carers and healthcare professionals to gather information on which are seen as the most important 'unanswered questions' around patient safety in primary care. The PSP's Steering Group was asked to rank a 'top 60' which was then collated into a second survey, again open to all. The end product of a 'top 10' list of unanswered questions was agreed on 16 March 2017 at a final workshop attended by healthcare professionals, patients and carers, which will be widely publicised.
Read the protocol (pdf), which set out the aims, objectives and commitments of the Patient Safety in Primary Care Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) and the basic roles and responsibilities of those taking part.
