The members of the network work collaboratively towards achieving a common purpose; building mechanisms to spread successful change from a framework of shared knowledge, learning and accountability.
News in Brief
Safety Climate Survey
The West Yorkshire Critical Care Network is currently undertaking a piece of work in partnership with the Yorshire & Humber Improvement Academy, measuring the safety climate across the critical care units in West Yorkshire.
Teams working to develop or improve a culture of safety need a reliable measure to monitor the success of their initiatives. Using the Safety Climate Survey can gain information about the perceptions of front-line clinical staff about safety in their clinical area and management’s commitment to safety.
Please take the time to share your views all of which will be anonymous.
The Service Improvement Lead on each of the Critical Care Units has copies of the survey. It will take a few minutes to complete.
Feedback from the survey will be provided to the MDT once analysis has taken place.
