Improving Safety and Reducing Error in Endoscopy (ISREE)

The ISREE strategy workshop seeks to promote learning from medical errors and patient safety incidents 

Medical errors and patient safety incidents remain largely unreported and unregulated at a national level. As patient safety remains at the core of JAG’s mission to improve endoscopy quality across the UK, JAG convened a workshop in January 2018 to discuss a new initiative: ISREE- Improving Safety and Reducing Error in Endoscopy. ISREE was developed from the premise that in order to make GI endoscopy services safer, we need to better understand, record, and draw on patient safety incidents as opportunities for learning.

Learning from endoscopy patient safety incidents: case of the month

Each month JAG publishes a case of the month highlighting a real-life clinical scenario which has impacted patient safety. Case studies are contributed by JAG leads and endoscopy services across the UK and are designed to provide an opportunity for discussion and to share learning.

Below you can find some examples, or visit the JAG website for all cases.

Nurses Station

Our career articles are part of a new venture from the BSG Education Committee designed to provide updates on hot topics in gastroenterology for consultants, trainees and nurses alike.

The new programme and e-portfolio in the JAG Endoscopy Training System (JETS), called JETS Workforce, contains endoscopy-specific competency frameworks, guidelines for direct observation of procedural skills (DOPS), witness statements and reflective continued professional development statements. These combine to create a platform to which members of the endoscopy workforce may submit evidence of their own practices.
