Surgical culture safety survey

18 Dec 2015 | Safe Surgery NZ

The Health Quality & Safety Commission's Surgical Culture Safety Survey provides baseline data on attitudes and perceptions of surgical team members at New Zealand district health boards. Nearly 850 survey responses were received.

The Commission is rolling out a package of programmes aimed at helping improve teamwork and communication in the operating theatre. The Surgical Culture Safety Survey was conducted to provide baseline data on attitudes and the quality of teamwork in operating theatres. It closely replicates analysis developed by the Harvard School of Public Health.

Questions and answers, and a copy of the survey, are available to download below.
