Non physician provider subjective assessment of personal risk associated with making an effort

Project Description: Most of the current literature suggests that having a work culture where the staff feels comfortable reporting their mistakes will lead to improvement in in patient care. However, creating such an environment is not easy. The obstacles to creating such a culture can be institutional or personal. UF Health, through staff education and institutional aims, has worked to create an environment where staff can admit to and report errors made which may impact patient safety or care. The concern, however, is that staff may not perceive this culture.
