Learning from significant medical events is a core component of quality and safety practice in healthcare worldwide. 

From a person-centred perspective it is imperative that significant event analysis is beneficial to both the medical staff who engage in the process, and the patients who are on the receiving end of medical care. If significant event analysis is to have such a positive impact, then it must work to improve the performance of doctors. However, the evidence that the analysis of significant events has a positive impact on doctor performance is relatively sparse. The presentation reports a systematic review into the impact of undertaking significant event analysis on medical performance. 

The seminar, presented by Dr Tristan Price, will also invite discussion on the methods of evidence synthesis and the potential benefits of using narrative synthesis approaches. 

Dr Tristan Price is a research fellow in the Collaboration for the Advancement of Medical Education Research and Assessment (CAMERA) at the University of Plymouth. He is currently working on a large NIHR-funded review into doctor remediation. Previous research includes a number of systematic reviews on topics related to remediation, doctor performance and medical licensing, as well as primary qualitative research on the organisational impacts of medical revalidation.

This seminar is part of the Community and Primary Care Research Group seminar series.
