QSEN Update: Creating a Just Culture within Schools of Nursing
Thursday, March 31
2:00-3:00 pm (ET)
A vital component for decreasing preventable deaths in hospitals, now estimated to be 400,000/year, is creating a just culture (i.e., one in which the reporting of errors and near misses [ENMs] is encouraged without fear of retribution and where learning can occur and be directed toward fixing system issues, rather than laying blame on the individuals who make mistakes). Clinical agencies have worked aggressively to institute this type of culture, yet schools of nursing have not kept pace with clinical agencies. This webinar will focus on creating a similar culture where student nurses can learn from errors and near misses. Hear the results of a national survey on the extent to which nursing schools are engaged in creating just cultures, and learn how to establish this form of culture in your own school of nursing.
