A culture of safety is vital to identifying, addressing, and preventing adverse events. Researchers delivered AHRQ's Community Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture to 445 Wisconsin pharmacists. Independent and clinic-based pharmacists reported a more robust safety culture compared to national chain pharmacists, as did pharmacists more familiar with their patients' care.
