AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture – Success Stories

December 1, 2014    |   By: Calevir

To prevent adverse events from occurring, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recommends you measure your patient safety culture.   AHRQ’s patient safety culture surveys provide feedback on your organization’s communication, teamwork, patient safety, leadership, and staff engagement.   The results can be used to measure your current culture and provide insight into the most effective methods to improve the patient safety culture at your healthcare organization.   The survey is available for medical offices, LTC, hospitals, and pharmacies.

AHRQ recently hosted a webinar, discussing the results of the 2014 Medical Office User Comparative Database Report.   On the webinar, survey users also shared how they have successfully applied the survey results to improve patient safety culture at their medical offices.   View the recording.
