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
  • survey customization
  • feedback report development
  • consultation with experts
  • next steps, resources, and action planning

Five AHRQ Surveys on Patient Safety™ culture are available:

Two CPS culture assessments are available and cross reference the AHRQ dimensions (available from CPS only):

“Working with the Center for Patient Safety has been a pleasure for SSM Health… We value their administration of our patient safety culture survey process, saving us many hours and boosting our participation in 2017 to over 60%.” – Deanne Jockish, SSM Health


 Solution B

While the surveys are publicly available from AHRQ, the ability to efficiently 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.
