An examination of factors that predict the perioperative culture of safety.

Wright MI, Polivka B, Abusalem S. AORN J. 2021;113(5):465-475.

Prior research identified variability in perioperative safety culture by provider type and experience. This study found that perioperative nurse engagement (e.g., energy, dedication, resilience) and perioperative nurse certification were significantly associated with self-reported safety culture in the operating room, but length of perioperative nurse experience was not.
