What are the important factors that need to be monitored in your selected work setting?

Introduction
Health care leaders function within a complex, high-risk environment where errors can lead to injury and death. The goal of any health care leader is to assess and manage risk, while concurrently promoting a culture of patient safety.
Patient safety is the cornerstone of high-quality care.
Youngberg (2011) addresses the need for leaders to create a systemic mindfulness of patient safety within the high-risk health care delivery environment. Further, the author discusses high-reliability organizations, which attain next to zero error rates, despite a great propensity for error or catastrophic events.
Read further in the Assessment 5 Context [PDF] document, which contains important information on the following topics related to change leadership, risk management, and patient safety:
Themes for Success in Leadership.
The National Patient Safety Goals and Strategic Direction.
Personal Reflection.
Ethical Leadership.
Professional Communication.
