Patient Safety and Teamwork Survey: Ends June 30

So far, only a small number of Emory physicians have responded to this important survey that will help us improve safety and teamwork in our clinical environments. Your perspective matters! Emory Medicine is committed to improving how we work together for our patients and families. As Department of Medicine faculty and trainees, we have important insights that can guide improvements in the various areas where we practice… Inpatient (e.g. wards, ICUs), procedure areas (e.g. cardiac cath labs, endoscopy), and clinics.

To identify what we are doing well and what we need to work on in these areas and across Emory, we are conducting an Emory-wide assessment of patient safety and teamwork culture. This survey, led by Dr. David Murphy in Pulmonary, includes all Emory clinical faculty, ESA physicians, community physicians, GME trainees, and staff across Emory Healthcare.

Once the survey closes tomorrow (June 30), we will be sharing the results on Emory-wide, department, division, unit/clinic, and division-levels, so that we can prioritize what to work on together.

If you have not yet completed the survey, please do so now. The links to complete the survey are individual-specific, so that we can follow response rates.
