  1. 1. Open the door to complexity : Safety climate and work processes in the operating room

    Author : Camilla Göras; Anna Ehrenberg; Ulrica Nilsson; Maria Unbeck; Mirjam Ekstedt; Anna Forsberg; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patient safety; operating room; complexity; safety climate; psychometrics; cross-sectional; observations and qualitative;

    Abstract : A complex adaptive system such as the operating room (OR), consists of different safety cultures, sub-cultures and ways of working. When measuring, a strong safety climate has been associated with lower rates of surgical complications. Teamwork is an important factor of safety climate. READ MORE
