Background: Patient safety is a global concern. Learning to provide safe, high-quality care is core to nursing education.


Problem: Students are exposed to diverse clinical practices, and experiences may vary between placements and across countries. Student experience is seldom used as an educational resource.


Approach: An international, European Union-funded project, Sharing Learning from Practice for Patient Safety (SLIPPs), aimed to develop an innovative online educational package to assist patient safety learning. Based on student reported data and educational theory, multiple elements were iteratively developed by a multicountry, multidisciplinary group.


Outcomes: The educational package is freely available on the SLIPPs Web site. Materials include a student reporting and reflection tool, virtual seminars, student reports data set, pedagogical game, high-fidelity simulation scenarios, scenario development and use guidelines, debriefing session model, and videos of simulations already performed.


Conclusions: E-learning enables removal of physical barriers, allowing educators, professionals, and students from all over the world to collaborate, interact, and learn from each other.
