New publication: Incident reporting in healthcare

Dear readers, I have during the past year been involved, as a co-supervisor, in a highly interesting PhD project focusing on the effects of safety interventions in healthcare. The first study in the project: Mind the gap between recommendations and implementation, is now published in the journal BMJ Openan open access journal making the paper freely accessible for all of you.

The study focuses on incident analyses from the Swedish healthcare system, and more specifically on the recommendations made in the analyses. The PhD student Jonas Wrigstad, himself an anaesthesiologist by profession, has asked the delicate research question "what are the success factors leading to some recommendations actually getting implemented?". The findings are actually rather fascinating and can most easily be summarised as "close in time, close in space". Check out the full paper for the details!
