Cooper A, Gray J, Willson A, et al. Journal of communication in healthcare. 2015;8:76-84.

This study examined how a quality improvement effort was communicated to frontline health care workers and found that structured communication enhanced awareness and knowledge of the planned safety intervention. The authors recommend that patient safety programs incorporate structured communication to frontline staff, but they suggest further study of its effects on safety culture is needed.
