March 16th: Patient Safety and Error Reporting

The first #MedRadJClub (16.03.15 at 8pm GMT) discussed the JMIRS radiation therapy paper “A Culture of Safety? An International Comparison of Radiation Therapists’ Error Reporting“. Although a therapy topic, the issue of error reporting and patient safety is a universal MRS issue.

Moderated by @JMIRSeditor, the hour discussion generated over 500 tweets from 56 participants, and a lot of chat following the posted topics:

  • T1: What is the role of in error reporting? Other disciplines?
  • T2: What are the risks and benefits to reporting in your centre?
  • T3: What were the purpose and design of the study?
  • T4: Results?
  • T5: Strengths & limitations?

  1. What a flying start to the #MedRadJclub! A fast moving discussion occurred, with sharing of practice from radiographers all over the world. What stood out was that all practitioners reported a drive to improve patient care and transparency, with some of the barriers to error reporting common to the diagnostic radiographers.
