​Latent Safety Threat workshop 

Latent safety threats (LSTs) have been defined as system based issues that threaten patient safety that can material​ize at any time and were previously unrecognized by healthcare providers, unit directors, or hospital administration. While LSTs such as system deficiencies, equipment failures, training, or conditions predisposing medical errors are frequently reported in the literature, a paucity was noted in the management and mitigation of these threats.

Assistant Professor at Department of Paediatrics and Child Health Dr Sidra Ishaque did a workshop on April 5, 2024. It was conducted as a series of courses to be offered to Paediatric residents, acu​​te and Critical Care nurses and PICU fellows to help them to identify, classify and eventually mitigate LSTs as a quality initiative​
