SIRAN events and training

Keep up to date with our upcoming events and training.

SIRAN Workshops 2024 

The Safety Incident Response Accreditation Network (SIRAN) within the Royal College of Psychiatrists' College Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI) is pleased to be hosting a series of free interactive workshops throughout the year. The workshops will be centred around a specific theme which came out of our Patient Safety Event in September 2023. The workshops will be interactive and informative and at the end of the year, a written report will be published to summarise the discussions across all the topics.

Each workshop will run online for one hour and all attendees will receive a CPD certificate following the workshop. They will start with one or two presentations related to the topic and then move to a discussion which will be chaired by one of our Accreditation Committee members.

  • Processes and Systems for Learning Lessons - Tuesday 18th June (10:00-11:00)
  • Embedded Patient Safety Partners - Thursday 19th September (14:30-15:30)
  • Safety Team Structures and Role Composition - Friday 11th October (09:30-10:30)

Peer Reviewer Training

Reviewer training is a free event for staff from SIRAN member organisations. The training is a great learning experience for those who are interested in participating in the virtual peer reviews of organisations signed up to SIRAN.

We strongly encourage individuals organising and reviewing other members to attend this online training, which will cover the process of virtual peer reviews.

A poster outlining the benefits of becoming a peer reviewer can be found here.

Learning objectives

The training will give potential reviewers the opportunity to gain practical knowledge about how to conduct a peer review visit. The online training session will involve presentation and discussion to develop the skills of a reviewer.

By the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • describe the overall peer review process
  • deliver the role and responsibilities of a peer reviewer before, during and after the peer review
  • troubleshoot and manage complaints and other difficulties that may arise during a peer review
  • describe and promote the ethos of the SIRAN peer-reviews
  • understand how to effectively carry out and participate in a virtual peer review.

The training is free to member services.
