TALK Foundation

The TALK Foundation is expected to continue the work commenced under the Horizon 2020 - Marie Curie Grant, ensure sustainability of our educational activities and foster further patient safety initiatives.

It will constitute an essential component in the legacy of this project.

The idea for TALK as a framework to guide multi-professional clinical debriefing was developed in June 2014. The tool is copyrighted to the developing team, Drs C Diaz-Navarro, A Hadfield and S Pierce. There is no actual or planned personal financial benefit from this development. All three authors are founding members in the board of trustees.

The TALK Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation registered with the UK Charity Commission under Registration Number 1177093.


The object of this CIO is for the public benefit to advance the
education of clinical teams in patient safety.

○      To behave ethically
