Safety Culture Measurement Expert Advisory Group

Ellis, L. (Consultant)

Activity: End user engagement and expertiseAdvisory position

Description

Patient safety culture can be measured through surveys of hospital staff, qualitative measurement, ethnographic investigation or a combination of these. To support local monitoring and improvement of patient safety culture in Australian hospitals, The Safety Culture Measurement Expert Advisory Group, within the Australian Commission of Safety and Quality in Healthcare, is developing a measurement toolkit. The toolkit will include a validated survey to measure patient safety culture, information on other validated measures, and advice on implementation and improvement strategies. Many of the members of the EAG are clinicians and work in the health system, whereas I provide expert consultation on research methodology and psychometric approaches to assessing safety culture.
