Strengthening a safety culture necessitates interventions that simultaneously enable, enact and elaborate in a way that is attuned to the existing culture. Through a literature review of more than 60 resources, a Patient Safety Culture Bundle has been created and validated through interviews with Canadian thought leaders. The 'Bundle' is based on a set of evidence-based practices that must all be applied in order to deliver good care. All components are required to improve the patient safety culture.
The Patient Safety Culture 'Bundle' for CEOs and senior leaders encompasses key concepts of safety science, implementation science, just culture, psychological safety, staff safety/health, patient and family engagement, disruptive behaviour, high reliability/resilience, patient safety measurement, frontline leadership, physician leadership, staff engagement, teamwork/communication, and industry-wide standardisation/alignment.
The bundle includes a variety of tools and resources.
