Organizational priority setting, leadership practices that motivate the pursuit of safety

The Patient Safety Culture “bundle” is arranged in three main parts with sub-sections under each; as with other safety bundles, all components are required to improve patient safety culture. Improving patient safety culture requires sequential, iterative and simultaneous interventions that ENABLE, ENACT and LEARN.

This section specifically examines the ENABLING components of the Bundle.

The table below addresses leadership’s responsibility for organizational priority setting and leadership practices that motivate the pursuit of safety. The enabling section provides tools and resources to support leadership in establishing organizational priorities, ensure positive leadership behaviors, appropriate support for human resources and health information technology, and good health system alignment. Please clink on the hyperlink within this subsection to access freely available tools and resources to support your work within this leadership area.
