(Answered) NR706 Week 5: Patient Safety and a Culture of Safety


NR706 – Healthcare Informatics & Information Systems, Online DNP Program Faculty


The purpose of this discussion is for you to explore your healthcare setting culture and the shifting paradigm from volume-based care to value-based care within the context of patient safety.


A paradigm shift is occurring across the United States from volume-based to value-based care. Reflect upon your organizational culture to address the following:

  1. Analyze and assess the culture of your healthcare setting as it relates to patient safety.
  2. Examine one opportunity to improve patient safety outcomes. Include in your strategy current technology being used to support safety and explain the importance of interprofessional collaboration to help promote a safer environment.


In the healthcare organization I work, the organizational culture plays a key role in ensuring that patient safety is attained. In this context, patient safety is promoted in an environment where healthcare professionals are dedicated to doing so, where mistakes and unfavorable incidents are seen as opportunities for growth and learning, and where patients are urged to participate actively in their treatment. In such a culture, as illustrated by Lee et al. (2019), communication, teamwork, and a dedication to constant improvement are all highly valued.……..please click the icon below to purchase full answer at $10
