Focus

In 2017 the Children’s Hospital will be piloting a training program called Building a Culture of Safety the UW Health Way. The purpose of this training is to decrease harm in the health care setting, both inpatient and ambulatory. Other children’s hospitals have seen an 80% reduction in their rate of serious preventable medical harm after instituting the safety principles and communication techniques taught.

The training is interactive and focuses on three safety expectations that EVERYONE must learn and follow all of the time.

  1. Everyone Makes a Personal Commitment to Safety
  2. Everyone is Accountable for Clear and Complete Communication
  3. Everyone Supports a Questioning Attitude

This online toolkit is a resource about the Safety Tools that are taught in the training program. The toolkit explains how to use the safety tools and when or where they could be helpful. We encourage you to explore the toolkit and think about how you will use the Safety Tools in your role!
