Experience of learning from everyday work in daily safety huddles – a multi-method study

Daily huddles with staff are used to support incident reporting and learning in healthcare. It is proposed that learning for improvement should also be based on situations where work goes well (Safety-II). A Safety-II-inspired model for safety huddles was developed at the Neonatal Care Unit in Jönköping, Sweden. Do patient safety huddles with a focus on Safety-II affect the results of measurements of the patient safety culture? What are the experiences of these huddles? What experiences of everyday work? A multi-method approach. The quantitative part consisted of a questionnaire, four different occasions 2018-2020 (151 items, response rates 44 % to 59 %).There were minor changes in patient safety culture measurements. Generally positive towards the huddles (supporting factors), and there were problems (hindering factors) in introducing Safety-II concepts. Support from managers and knowledge of the Safety-II theories of those who lead the huddles is important.
