      Abstract

      The Scottish Patient Safety Programme (SPSP) is a national quality improvement initiative which launched in 2008. NHS Scotland collaborated with the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) on the programme, and the theoretical basis of the implementation process was depicted by Paul Carlile and Clay Christensen, who developed a driver diagram with actionable guidance on how to meet the overarching aim to “Improve Safety of Healthcare Services in Scotland” (1). Within the acute sector a number of successes were achieved: a 7% reduction in hospital standardised mortality rates, a 70% reduction in Clostridium Difficile infection since 2007 and an avoidance of 125000 “bed days” in two years for those over 65 years old (2).
