Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success

This program has been developed and is presented locally by ACHE-NJ. ACHE has awarded 1.5 Face-to-Face Credits to this event!

Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States at 220,000 to 440,000 people dying each year from preventable errors according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. Clinicians and hospital staff face a devastating impact as a result of being involved with a medical error especially in organizations without a support system in place. It is important to build a culture in which all leaders and workforce understand principles of patient safety and supports the reporting of errors, lapses, miss-steps and adverse events. It allows the organization to learn and find ways to incorporate analysis to improve and embrace prevention of errors and adverse events. Establishing organizational behavior expectations allows the organization to understand current behaviors of the organization and promote transparency, effective teamwork, active communication, respect, and timely feedback, and provide rewards in sustaining a culture of safety.

To help healthcare leaders achieve total system safety across the continuum, ACHE, and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement/National Patient Safety Foundation Lucian Leape Institute have developed a guide “Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success”. This Blueprint is designed to help leaders shape, create and sustain the type of organizational culture needed to ensure patient and workforce safety and inspire healthcare leaders on the journey to zero harm.
