Just Culture Tool Kit

Improve the quality and safety of patient care in your facility by creating a just culture. 

A just culture not only promotes professional accountability and reporting of medical errors or near misses, but also fosters a professional interdisciplinary environment where actions are analyzed and actual or potential errors are evaluated in an open and fair milieu. In addition to the existing position statement "Creating a Practice Environment of Safety", these resources provide periOperative professionals with pertinent articles, videos and other resources to assist in exploring and developing a just culture.
