abstract

  • Despite numerous publications outlining the magnitude of patient safety issues, the literature provides limited strategies for organizations to develop comprehensive, effective patient safety programs. Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) has created a framework to foster local accountability called Patient Safety Triads and Networks. The Networks operationalize patient safety initiatives, develop knowledge and improve patient safety culture in a collaborative interdisciplinary team model. They have proven to be an effective way to support patient safety at the local level and to integrate organizational and local work on patient safety.
