Key points

  • Summarises the workshop discussion.
  • Presents the examples of capability building approaches shared with workshop participants before the event.

In May 2014, the Health Foundation hosted a workshop to discuss building capability for improving safety.

The event was developed in collaboration with NHS Improving Quality and was attended by leaders from across the NHS. The aim was to produce a useful overview of what capability for safety improvement organisations need, and the best ways to go about developing this capability.

In advance of the event, participants shared examples of capability building approaches that they were aware of, and this was supplemented by some rapid web research into notable examples of capability building strategies and initiatives.
