Overview

Nurses and other health care professionals have a pivotal role in developing and sustaining a patient safety culture. Building this culture requires open lines of communication between administration and direct care staff, creating a culture of trust and actively learning from failures as well as successes. Creating partnerships with patients and families, educating them on safety hazards, and equipping them with the right questions to ask regarding their safety all embody a culture of safety.

Learn how communication, collaboration, transparency, and trust among leadership, nurses, other staff, and patients and their families can encourage the reporting of adverse events and unsafe conditions, and help drive change and improvements in patient safety and patient outcomes in your work environment.

During this course you will discover:

  • The links between a healthy work environment, patient safety culture, and patient and nurse safety.
  • Components that make up a patient safety culture and how you can influence change.
  • How to assess the culture of safety in your practice and use the assessments to change your work culture and ultimately patient and nurse outcomes.
