Mary Madison, RN, RAC-CT, CDP  
Clinical Consultant – Briggs Healthcare

This AHRQ webcast will introduce the new Workplace Safety Supplemental Item Set that can be added to the end of the Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS®) Nursing Home Survey. The new item set assesses staff perceptions of workplace safety, including workplace hazards, inappropriate resident behavior toward staff, and work stress/burnout.

Speakers will provide background on the importance of workplace safety in nursing homes, an overview of the supplemental item set, results from a pilot test in 48 nursing homes, and highlight one healthcare organization’s experience.

The webinar is January 24, 2023 at 1:00 PM (ET)

The item set and additional resources will be available on the AHRQ SOPS website on the day of the webcast.
