What is a Clinical Risk Management Process?
DCB 0129 and DCB 0160 require organisations to develop and document a clinical risk management process (sometimes known as a clinical safety management system). These materials set out in detail how your organisation tackles safety management. It turns safety management from something which is done into something which happens. It makes safety management routine and automatic.
Constructing a Clinical Risk Management Process
Without help, building a process which works and accurately maps to the requirements of the standard is time-consuming and labour intensive. The documentation needs to withstand the rigour of audit but still be practical and proportionate to the level of risk.
Safehand will analyse your organisation’s current business processes and create materials which set out how clinical risk management will be undertaken and governed.
If you already have a quality management system such as ISO 9001, we will ensure that the safety processes integrate tightly into your existing methods. The intention is not to re-invent the wheel but rather enhance and build on your tried and tested workflow.
For organisations experienced in clinical risk management we can conduct a rigorous independent audit to identify where potential gaps may exist and work with you put effective solutions in place.
