Digital Health Software Safety and Risk Management Unit 2: Clinical Safety and Risk Management Systems – An Overview
In this unit we will consider the concept of clinical risk management for digital health. We will see how other safety critical industries that use risk management systems can have a positive impact on the digital safety culture within any organisation. By the end of this unit you will be able to define a clinical risk management system, differentiate between proactive and reactive approaches to risk management. You will also learn how to implement a clinical risk management system.

Stuart Harrison has led the Clinical Safety movement in the NHS alongside some of the most prominent Clinical leaders for over 15 years. He has refined NHS Clinical Safety & Risk Management Systems, re-authored NHS safety standards using plain English campaigns, and worked at the highest level to ensure core safety engineering principles are embedded in the NHS codes of practise.
Stuart's background is engineering, particularly safety critical industries where safety has immediate risk to harm to system users or the wider general population. He was one of the original authors, reviewers and implementers of the clinical safety standards over ten years ago. Stuart led the review into the implementation and effectiveness of clinical risk management and its relationship with design and assurance across the organisation and wider NHS. Having rewritten both standards as part of an independent consultation, and restructuring their methods provides a more agile model and easier uptake for users – therefore safer systems in healthcare.
