This is an exciting programme of work that draws on the patient safety literature and experience to develop the avoidable employee harm concept. We are delighted to be working with Aneurin Bevan University Health Board because of the innovative work they are undertaking in this area.
Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery
The focus on avoidable employee harm fits into our wider work to understand and improve the employee experience within our organisation – and this programme of research will also enable us to contribute to the academic literature and share the learning more widely. As we embark on this partnership with the University of Plymouth, we are also grateful to Health Education and Improvement Wales for their funding and support for this work to inform, shape and drive policy and practice within NHS Wales.
Head of the Employee Wellbeing Service, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board
We are looking forward to working with colleagues at the University of Plymouth to develop this area of research – learning from the significant impact and progress of the patient safety movement and applying that to how we look after those who work in healthcare.
