  • Develop strategies to create a transparent “culture of safety” environment in the ICU.
  • Create a safer environment for patients by establishing activities that promote the identification of risks in the critical care environment.

We cannot deliver perfect care if we are not first safe. This session provides the tools to design and promote activities that establish a “culture of safety” through transparency and innovation. By creating a “catch of the day” program, ICUs and pediatric critical care units (PCCUs) can identify and build processes to reduce errors in the work environment.
