NCPS offers Surveys on Patient Safety Culture

Thursday, September 27, 2018

NCPS will begin offering Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS™) in January 2019. NCPS will conduct the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s family of safety culture surveys. These surveys include assessments of safety culture in the hospital, nursing home, medical office, community pharmacy, and ambulatory surgery centers. NCPS members will receive discount pricing as compared to non-members. We are collaborating with the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Allied Health Professions to transition the safety culture assessment work previously done by Dr. Katherine Jones and her team to NCPS. Since Dr. Jones’s retirement from the College of Allied Health Professions in June 2018, UNMC no longer offers this service. For more information about the role of safety culture assessment and improvement in patient safety or to schedule a survey, please contact Gail Brondum
