The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture is designed to assess safety culture in outpatient clinics. This inaugural database describes survey results from more than 23,000 respondents (including both clinical and administrative staff) from 934 participating offices. Notable results include generally positive perceptions of teamwork and patient tracking, but the majority of respondents felt that production pressures adversely affected safety. The database is freely available from AHRQ for benchmarking and comparison purposes, as is the Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture database.
