Just Culture in Healthcare Certification Course - Online Workshop

Just Culture principles and the Just Culture Algorithm provide a consistent and constructive way of looking at accountability in healthcare. While not "blame-free", Just Culture allows healthcare professionals to feel safe to report openly about errors and near misses. In this course, physicians and healthcare professionals learn how to apply these principles and foster a culture of learning.

Saegis' virtual offering of the Just Culture in Healthcare Certification Course offers the same interactive content as in the intensive 2-day in person workshop. The program has helped many organizations and healthcare institutions develop a more open and just culture. Click here to register.

Saegis offers this program in partnership with the Just Culture Company, the company that developed the Just Culture model.
