Overview

Since the Institute of Medicine (IOM) rocked the nation with its landmark reports To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System and Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century, nurses have been instrumental in improving the quality and safety of U.S. health care. However, we have to ask—are we now truly practicing in a culture of safety?

Nurses are critical in defining the culture of safety and are integral to driving organizational change. Throughout 2016, ANA focused on “Culture of Safety” as a theme via the Navigate Nursing webinar series. Our experts helped distinguish key elements of a culture of safety and explored real issues facing nurses today including fatigue, shiftwork, and safety concerns related to our care of patients in mental health crises.

Now you will be able to cover these same topics at your own pace through the new and interactive program on Achieving Excellence Through a Culture of Safety. Engage with interactive case studies, quizzes, and self-reflection guides, to help you gain insight into strategies that will help you infuse a culture of safety into your nursing practice.

Join us for this innovative course and take the first step in changing your organization’s environment. This is your chance to be a part of the dialogue and make your voice heard!
