In a nutshell: In an article entitled, “Building capacity and capability for patient safety education: a train-the-trainers programme for senior doctors”, the authors explore engaging senior doctors in patient safety training, as both teachers and learners. There have been calls for patient safety to be included in the learning of all healthcare workers and senior clinicians are a key audience for this learning. Patient safety is a relatively new discipline so many senior clinicians have not been exposed to it as part of their training, but they could be used as an ‘expert faculty’ to drive and support the teaching of patient safety among all healthcare workers.
