Research project: Behaviour Around Rules During Invasive Procedures (BARDIP) Project

Currently Active: 

An investigation of organisational culture, individual attitudes and team practice concerning HEE Patient Safety agenda initiatives (e.g. rules and checklists) which seek to achieve safer practice during Surgery in operating theatres, Interventional Radiology and Endoscopy.

Overall, this project’s goal is to better understand whether and how clinical staff who are undertaking invasive procedures use tools intended to support HEE Patient Safety agenda initiatives (e.g. rules and checklists), and to then use that better understanding to improve practice. The project’s overarching research question will be: ‘Why do some health professionals follow formal rules intended to improve safe practice when others do not?’
