“Just culture taskforce” to be launched

AvMA welcomes the news that a ‘just culture taskforce’ is to be established in England. This is in response to a recommendation from the Expert Advisory Group on the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch:

“We recommend a Just Culture Task Force be established, bringing together safety and improvement experts with representatives of the legal and complaints systems, healthcare professionals, and patient and families representatives. This should determine the appropriate policies, practices and institutional arrangements that are required to move the healthcare system firmly towards a just culture of safety.”

The membership and precise terms of reference of the taskforce are yet to be defined, but AvMA hopes to be involved.

See the just culture taskforce website for more details as they emerge.
