Safety Learning Summaries

What is a Safety Learning Summary?

A Safety Learning Summary (SLS) is a description and analysis of a thread of  reported patient safety events such as Critical Incidents, Occurrences or Near Miss events. The goal is to promote and share learning from these patient safety events in the Winnipeg health region.

When are Learning Summaries created?

The Winnipeg health region receives several hundred reported patient safety events each year. However, Safety Learning Summaries are created on topics where there is system-wide learning potential.  Topics will often include analyzing clusters or themes found within the reported events. Learning Summaries also strive to provide enough information to stimulate learning in other units, facilities and regions across the country, while respecting patient and provider confidentiality.

All of the SLS can be searched through this website. In June 2013, we implemented a new SLS format.
