New “Blueprint” Guides Leaders in Building a Culture of Safety
Patient safety experts have increasingly pointed to the roles of organizational culture and leadership in the success of patient and workforce safety initiatives. Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success is a new evidence-based resource developed by the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and the NPSF Lucian Leape Institute (LLI). ACHE and the LLI (an NPSF program that is now part of IHI) partnered with progressive health care organizations and experts in leadership, safety, and culture to identify strategies known to contribute to a culture of safety. Leaders can use the Blueprint to guide their organizations’ culture transformation.
