Exploring the barriers and facilitators of psychological safety in primary care teams: a qualitative study.

Remtulla R, Hagana A, Houbby N, et al. BMC Health Serv Res. 2021;21(1):269.

Psychological safety can empower health care workers to voice concerns and offer suggestions in a collaborative way that contribute to effective care. Based on semi-structured interviews with primary care providers, the authors of this study discuss the influence of shared beliefs on psychological safety in primary care teams, as well as barriers (e.g., hierarchy, authoritarian leadership) and facilitators (e.g., inclusiveness) to psychological safety.
