Development and testing of an objective structured clinical exam (OSCE) to assess socio-cultural dimensions of patient safety competency.

Ginsburg LR, Tregunno D, Norton PG, et al. BMJ quality & safety. 2015;24:188-94.

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.
