Description

This learning module explores the links between organisational culture and patient safety. The key elements associated with a safety culture, most notably effective leadership, good teamwork, a culture of learning and fairness, and fostering patient-centred care, are discussed. The broader aspects of a systems approach to promoting quality and safety, with specific reference to clinical governance, human factors, and ergonomics principles and methods, are also briefly explored, particularly in light of the report of the public inquiry into care failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Describe the key attributes of organisational culture.
Identify the key components of a safety culture.
Discuss the effect of leadership, teamwork and an open and fair culture on patient safety.
Identify the framework used in the NHS to promote quality and safety, and the potential contribution of human factors, and ergonomics principles and methods.
