Ginsburg LR, Tregunno D, Norton PG, et al. BMJ Qual Saf. 2014 Nov 14; [Epub ahead of print].
This educational study found that an objective structured medical examination, in which a learner's interaction with a standardized patient is observed by a trained clinician, can reliably assess learner competence in safety culture. This suggests that safety culture cases could be added to existing clinical examinations in patient safety.
