Quality & Patient Safety Week – Improving Quality & Patient Safety byPromoting a Culture of Safety Contest

A safety culture consists of the shared values, attitudes, and patterns of behavior regarding safety.

Components of a safety culture include:

  • Staff, patients/clients and families openly speaking about safety concerns and seeking opportunities to improve safety.
  • Teams working with patients/clients and families to address safety concerns in a proactive, solution-focused manner.


Did you complete an improvement initiative that contributed to or promoted a culture of safety at your unit/department/program, site, or organization?

Share your success with your peers and colleagues to help spread these best practices…and be entered to WIN a free pizza lunch for your team courtesy of the Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety.  Click here for contest application form.

The contest winners will be presenting their initiatives on November 2, 2018 at the John Buhler Research Centre.
