This course will describe the necessary components of a just and accountable culture and the distinction between human error, at risk behavior, and reckless behavior. Participants will learn the importance of aligning the goals of a just culture with organizational codes of conduct, provider based peer review systems, and human resource policies and practices.

In creating a just and accountable culture, providers and organizations will come to understand the need to create meaningful responses to the types of errors witnessed so that providers deliver optimal care, be managed in a fair and consistent manner, and receive the support they may need if harm to patients ultimately occurs.

At the conclusion of the activity, attendees will be able to:
*Distinguish between systems related errors and human errors
*Define the three types of behavior giving rise to error
*Discover steps that can be taken to assure organizational and provider accountability
*Compare how the principles of a just culture are well aligned to current regulatory and accreditation mandates
*Identify the need to align a just and accountable culture to the organizations mission, vision, and values

This course is intended for Physicians of all specialties, Nurses, and Other Health Care Professionals with appropriate CME credit and nursing contact hours offered for each profession.
