Digital Health Software Safety and Risk Management Unit 6: Hazard Assessment Methods for Health IT and Medical Software
In this unit we will be looking at the various hazard assessment methods available to us. We have already learned from previous units about who should be involved, why we do it and how the hazard assessments work. This unit will build on that foundation learning and look at different methods and how they may be applied.

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.
• The advantages and disadvantages of each method relating to the size of your organisation, its role and the skills required to do the assessment correctly.
