The Center for Patient Safety (CPS) supports the AHRQ suite of surveys and offers an additional two, developed by CPS, to provide assessments across the continuum of care and to capture safety culture feedback.

Visit www.ahrq.gov for more information on the AHRQ Survey on Patient Safety (SOPS) Culture.

As part of its goal to support a culture of patient safety and quality improvement in the Nation’s health care system, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) sponsored the development of patient safety culture assessment tools for hospitals, nursing homes, ambulatory outpatient medical offices, community pharmacies, and ambulatory surgery centers.

Two CPS surveys on patient safety culture are available and cross reference the AHRQ dimensions (available from CPS only):

Health care organizations can use these survey assessment tools to:

  • Raise staff awareness about patient safety.
  • Diagnose and assess the current status of patient safety culture.
  • Identify strengths and areas for patient safety culture improvement.
  • Examine trends in patient safety culture change over time.
  • Evaluate the cultural impact of patient safety initiatives and interventions.
  • Conduct internal and external comparisons.

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