Upcoming surgical safety culture survey

18 Jun 2015 | Safe Surgery NZ

If you work as part of a surgical team, keep an eye out for your invitation to participate in the Health Quality & Safety Commission’s surgical safety culture survey.

The survey will form baseline information on the safety culture within operating theatres in New Zealand, as part of the Commission’s work on improving teamwork and communication.

The survey will use the Surgical Safety Culture Survey developed by Harvard University School of Public Health. The baseline results for their survey have been recently published.
