The Aim:

The aim of this fun and engaging board game is to help the individual and team understand their role and responsibility in reducing patient harm. Record keeping and communication is a constant theme throughout the game which can be applied into a care setting.

The Objective:

At the end of a game staff will be able to identify and discuss how they can minimise the risk related to the following harms:

  • Falls Pre-Order
  • Catheter Acquired Urinary Tract Infections
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Venous Thromboembolism
  • Medication
  • Nutrition & Hydration

Key Messages
  • We should all aim for 'harm free' care for
    service users.
  • Make every contact count
  • Every heath professional, regardless of
    their speciality, is responsible for each
    service user.
  • Service users are also responsible for
    their own health and well being where
    appropriate. The use of patient information
    leaflets and conversations are vital to this
