Patient safety, systems thinking and human factors: how Patient Safety Learning is contributing to the reduction of avoidable harm in healthcare

Please join us for our next Healthcare Sector Group meet-up to hear a short talk from Helen Hughes more about safety systems leadership in health, the global agenda for health and human factors and the communities of interest that you may wish to engage in.

Helen is Chief Executive of Patient Safety Learning. Her passion for improved patient safety is informed by personal family insight into the impact of unsafe care and the ineffectiveness of organisational responses to learn from harm. Helen is an experienced leader in organisational effectiveness and transformational change.

She has held leadership roles in healthcare in the UK and the WHO, the National Patient Safety Agency, Equality and Human Rights Commission, Parliamentary Health Services Ombudsman and the Charity Commission. At the WHO, she held a range of roles, including partnership and patient safety programme management and executive lead of the global ‘Patients For Patient Safety’ programme.
