  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine undergraduate students' level of knowledge, attitude, and confidence toward patient safety. Methods: A descriptive survey design was used. The subjects consisted of 932 senior nursing students who have had clinical practice in nursing schools in a metropolitan city in Korea. The data were collected from March 4th to 28th in 2011. Knowledge, attitude, and confidence on patient safety were measured using self administered questionnaires. Data were analyzed with SPSS 18.0 using descriptive statistics, t-test, One-Way ANOVA, and Pearson correlation coefficient. Results: Knowledge of patient safety was relatively low and attitude and confidence were at moderate level. There were statistically significant differences in knowledge, attitude, and confidence toward patient safety according to gender, educational system, grades, satisfaction with nursing major or clinical practice, and experience of patient safety education or patient safety campaign. There was a significant positive correlation among knowledge, attitude and confidence on patient safety. Conclusion: The study findings suggests that concept and skills on patient safety need to be educated systematically during undergraduate curriculum linked with clinical practicum.

  • Purpose: This study aimed to explore the influences of sense of ethics and attitude toward patient safety in confidence in patient safety in nursing students. Methods: This descriptive study was conducted with 198 students who had clinical practices in two nursing schools. Sense of ethics, attitude and confidence about patient safety were measured by a questionnaire. Data were analyzed with SPSS/WIN 19.0 using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and multiple regression analysis. Results: There were significant differences in satisfaction with nursing major by grade. There were significant positive correlations among sense of ethics, attitude toward patient safety, confidence in patient safety, view on patient's safety, and satisfaction with nursing major. Confidence in patient safety was associated with sense of ethics, attitude toward patient safety, and view on patient's safety, with 37.6% of the variance. Conclusion: The findings suggest that we need to develop curriculums for undergraduate students to improve their sense of ethics and patient safety. Further research is needed to examine educational needs on patient safety in nursing students.

  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the attitudes and performing confidence, and factors influencing patient safety of dental hygiene students. The questionnaire contained items on the subjects' general characteristics, attitudes, and performing confidence in relation to patient safety. The self-reported questionnaire was administered to 287 dental hygiene students in Gwangju and Jeonnam, Korea from September to November 2017. We performed an independent t-test, one-way ANOVA analysis, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and multiple regression analysis using IBM SPSS ver. 21.0 software. As a result of differences in attitude, and performing confidence according to the general characteristics, attitude toward patient safety scored 3.48 out of 5 points, and was more positive in students from 4-year colleges, with high major satisfaction, and in students who answered that they needed patient safety education. Performing confidence for patient safety scored 3.57 out of 5 points, and was statistically significantly higher in 4-year college students, with higher major satisfaction, amongst those with experience in patient safety education, and when patient safety education was needed before clinical practice or employment. There were positive correlations between attitude and performing confidence for patient safety. As a result of analyzing the factors influencing attitude and performing confidence for patient safety, attitudes were higher with higher performing confidence and performing confidence had the highest satisfaction rate of the major and patient safety education experience. Therefore, it is necessary to provide systematic education at universities reflecting the characteristics of dental medical institutions, as well as developing various education contents and education methods.

  • Purpose: The aim of this study was to establish a hypothetical model on silence regarding patient safety and to verify the model's goodness of fit and hypotheses. Methods: The participants in this study were 330 registered nurses working in tertiary hospitals with over 300 beds. Data were collected between July 1, and August 30, 2017, from nurses who agreed to participate. A covariance structure analysis was performed. Results: The model of fit index was $x^2=59.54$, normed $x^2=2.29$, GFI=.97, AGFI=.93, SRMR=.05, NFI=.99, CFI=.95 and RMSEA=.05. The organizational culture had an influence on patient safety motivation (${\beta}=.26$, p=.003) and attitude (${\beta}=.43$, p<.001). RN-MD collaboration had an influence on patient safety motivation (${\beta}=.33$, p<.001), attitude (${\beta}=.35$, p<.001), and patient safety silence (${\beta}=-.17$, p=.026). Supervisory trust had an influence on patient safety motivation (${\beta}=.26$, p<.001), attitude (${\beta}=.12$, p=.036), and patient safety silence (${\beta}=-.23$, p=.002). Patient safety motivation had an influence on patient safety silence (${\beta}=-.33$, p=.006). The model of patient safety silence explained 36.0% of the variances. Conclusion: This study is meaningful in that it provides basic data for nursing education and program development for rejecting patient safety silence.

  • Purpose: This study evaluated the effects of knowledge and attitude on confidence about patient safety management among emergency medical technician (EMT) students. Methods: A self-reported questionnaire was completed by 174 EMT students in two cities from May to June 2016. Data were analyzed using PASW WIN 20.0 for descriptive statistics, t-test, one way analysis of variance, and hierarchical multiple regression. Results: The students' confidence about patient safety management was 3.33 (on a 5-point scale). Confidence varied according to average academic grade (p=.015), experience in patient safety education, and experience in writing medical error reports. After adjusting for sex, average academic grade, and experience in patient safety education, knowledge and attitudes about patient safety increased a student's confidence in patient safety management by 19%. Conclusion: Patient safety education should be included in programs on health promotion and be provided as basic information in intervention programs for EMTs.
