About the Project

Project background:

This project is collaboration between the Bayes Business School and the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH). It will focus on ethnographic fieldwork related to GOSH’s patient safety strategy. The project will specifically look at the processes and practices by which patient safety experts (specialists with a focus on patient safety) advance patient safety goals and embed them in the organization’s culture. It will draw on ethnographic methods that involve, primarily, shadowing patient safety experts at GOSH.
