Patient Safety Culture

Engineer a Culture of Safety

image1

Four components of organizational safety culture interact to inform people about the risks and hazards that exist in organizations: reporting culture, just culture, flexible culture, and learning culture. Reporting culture and just culture create an atmosphere of trust that supports sensemaking — a process of identifying and learning from patterns in events. 

Strategies for engineering a culture of patient safety culture include:

  • Implementing practices that support a reporting culture
  • Implementing practices that support a just and fair culture
  • Implementing practices that support a flexible (teamwork oriented culture)
  • Implementing practices that support a learning culture
