The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of combined training on the safety culture of the treatment team in the neonatal and intensive neonatal care departments of the hospitals in Isfahan.
The present study was carried out in a clinical trial in two stages before and after the intervention on some personnel(32 members) of neonatal and intensive neonatal care departments of the mentioned hospital. The sampling method was a census. Data was collected by questionnaire. The combined training included film show and group round. First, the patient safety culture survey questionnaire was completed by the personnel.then they were grouped. At first, the educational video was displayed for 45 minutes and then, using a checklist in the neonatal intensive and neonatal care department, the participants observed and recorded the performance of their colleagues on the check list. After one month, the patient safety culture survey questionnaire was completed by the treatment team members.
The results of the analysis showed that the translated questionnaire with 12 given domains is a suitable tool for assessing the patient’s safety status in our country. The results showed that in the 12 dimensions of the patient safety culture, the highest average score in the group work dimension of the units, before the intervention, was 3/95±0/57, after the intervention, 3/88±0/55, and in the non- reproval dimension of the mean score before the intervention was 2/59±74/2 and after the intervention 2/34±0/70. The average of the safety culture of the patient before the intervention was 3.40 ± 0.33 and after the intervention 3.39±0/32 .
After evaluating the status of the safety culture in the hospitals, it is necessary to take steps to plan the patient’s safety culture through appropriate planning and intervention.
