Primary use / Purpose:
The SafeQuest is a safety climate measure designed for use in primary care organizations. It is intended for all members of the primary care team, whether they have clinical or non-clinical roles and whether they are based in a practice or in the community. The questionnaire contains thirty items that are grouped into five sections: 1. Workload 2. Communication 3. Leadership 4. Teamwork and 5. Safety systems.
A guide for making the most of your SafeQuest results is provided below. This is a useful aid in determining how to share and utilise the results of the safety climate assessment.
Practice teams have the option to register free of charge at hf.gpsafetyclimate.com. This allows the survey to be distributed and completed electronically. An additional benefit of registration is that a safety climate report can be generated for the team.
