Perspectives on co-production in developing the Patient Safety Climate Tool

Published on : 28 March 2018

A recent report was completed by Julie McLellan, a PhD student, who was undertaking a three-month internship at Healthcare Improvement Scotland, funded by the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science. The aim of this project was to understand the co-production process that took place during the development and delivery of the Patient Safety Climate Tool.

The Patient Safety Climate Tool (PSCT) is a facilitated self-reported measure which assesses perceptions of environmental, relational, medical and personal safety. It provides a snapshot of what goes on in a specific ward at a specific time.

This report presents the key findings from a series of interviews with Healthcare Improvement Scotland and third sector professionals involved in the design, development and delivery of the Scottish Patient Safety Programme’s Mental Health Patient Safety Climate Tool (PSCT). The aim of these interviews was to assess the co-production process that took place in the development and delivery of the PSCT.

The purpose of this report is to share learning from a co-production process taking place in a mental health context by reporting on the experiences of those who were at the centre of the PSCT development.
