CPS Patient Safety Culture Advantage

The Center for Patient Safety (CPS) recognizes there are many tools to help you along your patient safety journey. The most valuable first step is to measure your culture. CPS offers two solutions to support your culture measurement through the use of standardized assessments.

Solution A

The Center for Patient Safety will help you with your entire assessment process:

  • survey selection
  • promotional materials

 Solution B

While the surveys are publicly available from AHRQ, the ability to efficiently administer the
survey and conduct appropriate analysis is often challenging with limited resources.

If you’ve administered a safety culture survey recently, you know there is a lot of data to analyze to determine your next steps. If it has been more than 45 days since your survey and you haven’t taken action to develop a plan, let CPS help. Send us your data, we’ll provide a customized robust 20+ page feedback report. You’ll also receive a call from a CPS patient safety expert that will help you interpret your results and start your action plan.
