About the Centre
The Greater Manchester Primary Care Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (Greater Manchester PSTRC) is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) for five years (£6,291,208 from August 2012) and works on behalf of Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with The University of Manchester.
It is a unique and groundbreaking centre, with a strong patient and public involvement and engagement agenda.
Covering four main research themes,
the centre makes the University of Manchester a world leader in primary care patient safety research.
James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership
The Primary Care Patient Safety Priority Setting Partnership (Patient Safety PSP) aims to identify, through a simple questionnaire, the top ten areas of uncertainty around patient safety in primary care, as agreed by patients, carers and healthcare professionals.
Safer Primary Care dissemination event
We are hosting our flagship event Safer Primary Care: A shared responsibility for system-wide learning at the Manchester Conference Centre on 7 and 8 March 2017. The event will focus on research into patient safety in primary healthcare generally as well as highlighting our research outcomes over the last five years.
Why focus on patient safety in primary care?
All patients are entitled to access safe and effective health care. Avoiding errors, or identifying and correcting them, is a high priority.
- Develop evidence-based approaches to keep patients safe in their interactions with primary care
- Develop capacity in primary care patient safety research
- Develop and test educational interventions aimed at both patients and practitioners to improve patient safety
