Hi Everyone! You’ve heard of Leapfrog..now there’s Safety Dog, CPPS (Certified Professional in Patient Safety)! This blog will merge ideas from management, nursing, medicine and psychology (and many others) to offer a different view of patient safety. There will be a heavy concentration of information on human factors theory, high reliability theory, resiliency and normal accident theory. The author, who has worked as an RN in Pediatrics since 1985, has a Masters in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, and obtained a graduate certificate in Error Science, Full Disclosure and Patient Safety Leadership at the University of Illinois @ Chicago. All comments are welcome..you never know when one of your thoughts might save a life!

Rigor and methods of psychology are applied to issues of critical relevance to business, including talent management, coaching, assessment, selection, training, organizational development, performance, and work-life balance (SIOP, 2009).”
