A Review of SA Health and Wellbeing’s Safety Learning System Report

Peter Hibbert, Tim Schultz, Vivien Leigh

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

As part of its commitment to a safe healthcare system for all South Australians (SA), the SA Department of Health and Wellbeing (DHW) has used the Safety Learning System (SLS) since 2011. This is an incident management system that allows healthcare staff to report incidents and near misses. They are reviewed, escalated where appropriate, analysed and investigated in an attempt to prevent their occurrence in the future. The SLS is a “state-wide” system which allows healthcare professionals access to report incidents in all SA public health services and related agencies such as ambulance. The Safety and Quality Unit in the DHW provide administrative support, policy and analytical functions for the SLS.
