Abstract

The aim of the study is to provide an in-depth exploration of how junior doctors learn and perceive patient safety during their 1st year of foundation training. A longitudinal qualitative study design, involving 26 1st year foundation trainees from teaching hospitals across the Greater Manchester, was adopted. Data was collected through two stages of semi-structured interviews.  Initial data analysis reveals the role of formal and hidden curriculum in knowledge acquisition as well as local practices as the factors both contributing to and hindering patient safety learning. Integration of patient safety into foundation training often depends on individual organisations and is mostly achieved through structured learning or training sessions. Participants appear to develop a more comprehensive and structured understanding of patient safety during the 1st year of training. This is, however, mostly achieved through personal experiences, observations and ongoing exposure to the wider hospital environment
