Abstract

Annual NHS clinical negligence expenditure is rising every year. The overarching NHS clinical governance strategy aims at a reduction in adverse incidents in the health service. However, adverse incidents in the health service continue to rise and in NHS hospitals these account for 10% of admissions (in excess of 850,000 per year) and cost an estimated £2 billion in additional hospital stays alone. This thesis investigates software methods that could reduce the frequency of adverse incidents in hospitals, using available best practices. The objective is to reduce the number of incidents in hospitals by helping the NHS staff gain a deep understanding of risk management with minimal distraction from their daily duties. The solution is an e-learning tool which combines web based e-learning and database management functionality. It provides the users with risk management educational material and appropriate database tools in order to be able to build up a risk action plans database based on their job experience and those educational materials. The software application has been developed based on a development methodology and a customized software development life cycle model. The research addressed the complexity and multidimensional nature of the risk management e-learning development approach in the health care environment. Throughout the research a deeper understanding of variety of concepts and aspects in different fields has been gained and the appropriate educational platform and pedagogy for the system has been identified.
