The Conceptual Framework for the International Classification for Patient Safety v1.1. – Final Technical Report and Technical Annexes, 2009.
This Final Technical Report provides a detailed overview of the conceptual framework for the International Classification for Patient Safety (ICPS), including a discussion of each class, the key concepts with preferred terms and the practical applications.
The World Alliance for Patient Safety convened a Drafting Group to initiate and take forward a work program. The Drafting Group set out to define, harmonize and group patient safety concepts into an internationally agreed classification in a way that is conducive to learning and improving patient safety across systems.
The purpose of the International Classification for Patient Safety is to enable categorization of patient safety information using standardized sets of concepts with agreed definitions, preferred terms and the relationships between them being based on an explicit domain ontology (e.g., patient safety). The ICPS is designed to be a genuine convergence of international perceptions of the main issues related to patient safety and to facilitate the description, comparison, measurement, monitoring, analysis and interpretation of information to improve patient care.
It is important to note that the ICPS is not yet a complete classification. It is a conceptual framework for an international classification which aims to provide a reasonable understanding of the world of patient safety and patient concepts to which existing regional and national classifications can relate.
