Cognitive Institute’s Safety and Reliability Partners are an exclusive group of international healthcare providers, dedicated to the delivery of the highest levels of safe and reliable practice by implementing the Institute’s Safety and Reliability Improvement Programme in their organisations.
The Partners are Singapore’s Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, as well as UK based Great Ormond Street Hospital. Australian organisations include Sydney Adventist Hospital, Melbourne Health, Metro South Health Service – Logan Bayside Health Network, Children’s Health Queensland and Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service.
The Safety and Reliability Improvement Programme (SRIP) supports partner organisations to build an improvement culture by further developing their capability to deliver safe and reliable care. It integrates with existing effective systems and programmes and addresses the influence and impact of organisational climate, leadership commitment, reliability science application and high-performance work practices on quality and safety outcomes.
The programme is designed to meet each partner organisation’s needs by recognising existing effective systems and programmes, building an improvement culture and the capability to understand, value and deliver safe and reliable care.
The Safety and Reliability Improvement Programme framework includes two evidence-based Cognitive Institute offerings; the Speaking Up for Safety™ programme and the Promoting Professional Accountability programme. These programmes support an organisation-wide speaking up culture and address unprofessional behaviours that undermine a culture of safety.
Safety and Reliability Partners have exclusive access to a training and support programme that establishes inhouse ‘Safety Champion’ advocates, leadership education and training and expert consultancy services including education intervention customisation based on an action research model of enquiry.
Partners also participate with fellow partners in the Institute’s international learning collaboratives and study tours to foster learning and exposure to best practice.
