ANA offering activities to help RNs make that goal a reality

With the start of the New Year, the American Nurses Association has ramped up its efforts to assist nurses in achieving a culture of safety in 2016 – no matter where they work or what role they hold. The theme of this yearlong campaign is Safety 360 Taking Responsibility Together.

 

As part of the campaign, ANA is highlighting its range of existing resources through articles and other communication vehicles and offering new educational opportunities, including webinars, to nurses every month on a specific aspect of a culture of safety.

One educational activity is a webinar in which ANA President Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, will define and identify key elements of what a culture of safety looks like in health care. She also will address the evolution of the national patient safety dialogue and action steps RNs can take to contribute to a culture of safety in their practice environments, including summoning the courage to give feedback on workplace issues that can negatively impact patients or themselves. For webinar dates and to access them, click on the SHOP ANA Nursing Knowledge Center button on NursingWorld.org or by going directly to the catalogue at https://learn.ana-nursingknowledge.org.
