Investigating Incidents and the Duty of Candour

Venue: Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street

Date: 3 Oct 2014

Synopsis: This training day will equip delegates with a proven methodology and a highly-regarded report structure that will help with the investigation of incidents and the production of reports.


In the wake of the Francis Inquiry into the failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust the Department of Health has introduced a contractual duty of candour that requires NHS and Foundation trust staff to be open and honest with patients and their families about patient safety incidents.

This new duty emphasises the need for patient safety incidents to be investigated using a robust methodology; for investigation reports to be evidentially sound, accessible and focused on producing actionable and reasonable recommendations.
