07. Patient Safety Culture

Patient Safety culture has been defined as the set of values, attitudes, perceptions, beliefs, skills and behavioural patterns that at the individual and group level determine compliance with quality and safety procedures, leadership styles and capacity to manage the risks to patients associated with healthcare. Safety culture is directly related to the outcome of the healthcare intervention and is linked to organisational factors, leadership styles, composition and operational capacity and decision-making by clinical teams.
