Brief Summary in Lay Language

Patient Safety is an essential part of quality assurance in the healthcare field. In terms of a continous improvement processes it is important for hospitals to deal with this topic. The objective of the project is the development, implementation and evaluation of a training to improve patient safety in acute care. To adjust the contents to the special requirements of acute care teams, focusgroup-interviews with different interest groups (quality managers, physicians, nursing staff) are conducted. The training consists of 2 parts: an eLearning session, which is conducted in an individual setting and a workshop, which is conducted in a gruop setting. The topics for the eLearning are teamwork, patient involvement and safety culture. This esteablishes a good grassroot for the subsequent workshop in which corresponding practical tasks are conducted. The training will be implemented within the personal, team and organizational development. To evaluate the training patient safety, interprofessional teamwork, patient involvement and safety culture will be measured before and after the training. We expect that these criterions will be improved in the post measure.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Patient safety is an essential part of quality assurance in the healthcare field. The objective of the project is the development, implementation and evaluation of a training to improve patient safety in acute care. The training consists of an eLearning session (3 modules: teamwork, patient involvement, safety culture) and a workshop (corresponding practical tasks). The eLearning is individually conducted and the workshop is realized in a group setting. Every participant has to run through learning modules, teaching videos and interactive podcasts in the eLearning session. Case studies and simulations were realized in the workshop. To adjust the contents to the special requirements of acute care teams, focusgroup-interviews with various interest groups (quality managers, team members) are conducted. Standardized questionnaires will measure organizational conditions, barriers and benefit factors. These information will be helpful for the implementation of the training. The training will be evaluated in a cluster randomized controlled study. Patient safety, interprofessional teamwork, patient involvement and safety culture will be measured with standardized questionnaires at two points of time: before and after the training. Therefore a multivariate analysis of variance will be used. Moreover, criteria of satisfaction with the various interventions and a usability measurement will be conducted.
