Brief description Medical staff work in busy, often disruptive environments. There is growing evidence that disruptions compromise patient safety, although this process is not well understood. This project aims to use novel statistical methods to elucidate the complex relationship between disruption and adverse patient outcomes. It will enable informed intervention design and provide the tools to accurately assess the impact of such interventions.
