TIPS is a validated Master’s level module delivered by the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) and accredited by the Centre for Professional Practice at the University of Kent.
TIPS (Teams Improving Patient Safety) is a work-based development module aimed to improve patient safety through an interdisciplinary team approach. This module raises awareness of policy, theory, concepts and practice which underpin multi-disciplinary working through the critical examination of literature and practice.
TIPS uses the workplace as the main resource for learning and is aligned with indicators of effectiveness for Health Education England’s Education Outcomes Framework. Learning, in and from practice, through critical reflective approaches are integral to the module. TIPS complements other EKHUFT engagement initiatives, such as the Link Worker Scheme, Clinical Leadership Programme and Shared Purpose Framework to deliver person-centred, safe and effective care in a workplace culture that enables and sustains quality improvement. Teams develop their improvement initiatives to engage their colleagues in roll-out using PDSA and other improvement techniques such as Driver Diagrams.
