Available as a standalone event, or held in conjunction with another event, such as a pre- or post-conference workshop. The event is 6-8 hours in length and led by two (2) Center for Patient Safety experts, certified in patient safety.


There is no limit to the number of attendees who can participate in the Forums or Boot Camps; however, the hands-on offerings by Center staff are limited when the participant quantity exceeds 100. The most appropriate size, based on previously held workshops, is 35-50 attendees. The smaller size allows for ample one-on-one opportunities with CPS experts and strong peer-to-peer networking.


The workshop is eligible for Continuing Education Credits. It is the responsibility of the hosting organization to coordinate CEUs from the appropriate accrediting bodies. 


  1. Understand patient safety culture
  2. Understand the difference between a punitive environment and a just culture
  3. Ability to use quality improvement tools such as Root Cause Analysis and Prioritization Matrix
  4. List three next steps to improve patient safety culture in your organization.


While each training event is unique, common workshop elements exist that are intended to assist in the development, or reassessment of, an organization’s patient safety plan. The workshop agenda is built for customization. Hosting organizations have input into the program. There are agenda openings for special guest speakers and improvement stories or presentations on relevant topics relevant to the attendees.
