Learning from significant events


This module has been updated to reflect the GMC's 'Good medical practice' (2024) guidance.

This course aims to improve your learning from significant events.

Learning objectives:

  • why it is important to have a system in place to recognise, analyse and learn from significant events
  • identifying, reporting and acting on significant events
  • how to carry out a significant event analysis (SEA)
  • storage and disclosure of SEA records.

The course is primarily aimed at clinicians and managers working in primary care, although those working in secondary case will find much of the information useful.

You will have the opportunity to test your knowledge as you work through the course. Plus there is a short end of module quiz. Upon finishing, you will be able to download a certificate of completion. 

The course is made up of five chapters and will take about 40 minutes to complete. If you do not have time to complete the course in one sitting you can save your progress by clicking on the power button in the blue navigation bar.
