The Manchester Patient Safety Framework (MaPSaF) is a tool to help NHS organisations and healthcare teams assess their progress in developing a safety culture.


 

MaPSaF uses critical dimensions of patient safety and for each of these describes five levels of increasingly mature organisational safety culture. The dimensions relate to areas where attitudes, values and behaviours about patient safety are likely to be reflected in the organisation’s working practices. For example, how patient safety incidents are investigated, staff education, and training in risk management.

 

Assessment is carried out in workshops, led by a facilitator from the healthcare organisation.

 

MaPSaF can be used in many ways, for example:

 

  • To facilitate reflection on patient safety culture.
  • To stimulate discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of the patient safety culture.
    To reveal any differences in perception between staff groups.
  • To help understand how a more mature safety culture might look.
  • To help evaluate any specific intervention needed to change the patient safety culture.

These can be applied at organisational or team level.
