This e-guide help understand and use the Measurement and Monitoring of Safety Framework (MMSF). The framework helps organisations understand how safe is the care they provide by prompting them to consider five questions: Has the care we deliver been safe in the past? Are our systems and processes reliable? Is our care safe today? Will our care be safe in the future? Are we responding and improving? This e-guide is based on the experiences of a range of organisations who have used the MMSF in their settings – from mental health, acute medicine through to ambulance services. It does not replace existing Health Foundation publications on the measurement and monitoring of safety but is designed to complement them. The e-guide summarises learning captured through implementation of the MMSF in different contexts and includes reflections of managerial and frontline staff on using the MMSF.
