Patient safety experts and researchers point to organizational culture as critical to the success of patient and workforce safety initiatives. Yet creating a culture of safety in health care settings can prove challenging.
In this course, participants will learn to articulate the importance of a safety culture, gain the skills they need to understand their own organization’s culture, and adopt behaviors and attitudes to achieve change. Participants will move beyond buzzwords to become fluent in the language of culture, and identify clear, practical actions they can take to change their organization’s safety culture for the better
and for the long run.
