The Experience Feedback Committee (EFC) : an innovative safety enhancement tool in hospital setting?

Abstract : Quality and safety have become major issues for nearly two decades. Several a priori and a posteriori safety tools based on James Reason’s Swiss Cheese Model have thus been implemented. In France, a new safety-enhancement tool based on the experience of civil aviation was developed in 2003: the Experience Feedback Committee. We realized a qualitative interview-based study in two different settings. 36 health care professionals were interviewed. The aim of this study is to understand the social sciences mechanisms explaining the effects produced by Experience Feedback Committees and their impact over quality of care and patient safety. Our results indicate that under certain conditions the Experience Feedback Committee can be used as an innovative and effective safety enhancement tool. These results prompted us to produce recommendations to improve its effectiveness and facilitate its further deployment.
