Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture

Pharmacy Survey Toolkit

In response to pharmacies interested in a survey that focuses on patient safety culture in their facilities, AHRQ sponsored the development of the Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture. This new survey is designed specifically for community pharmacy staff and asks for their opinions about the culture of patient safety in their pharmacy.

Survey User's Guide

The User's Guide provides a general overview of the issues and major decisions involved in conducting a survey and reporting the results. The User's Guide includes information on getting started, determining data collection methods, establishing data collection procedures, conducting the survey, and preparing and analyzing data, and producing reports.

Comparative Database

Many pharmacies using the AHRQ Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture have expressed interest in comparing their results to other pharmacies. In response, AHRQ is establishing the Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture Comparative Database in fall 2014. This database will be a central repository for survey data from pharmacies that have administered the pharmacy survey.

Results are provided for the items and safety culture composites on the AHRQ Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture from 55 pharmacies that participated in a pilot test of the survey in the United States in early 2012.
