In a just culture, healthcare workers and patients or family members feel comfortable to report errors and threats to patients’ safety. This information is used to learn and make changes to the system to improve patients’ safety.

The just culture initiative will foster an atmosphere of trust, where people feel safe discussing quality and safety concerns without fear of blame. When something does go wrong with patient care, healthcare workers will be supported and treated fairly.

Dr. Ward Flemons
Just Culture

Ward Flemons, MD, is a Respirologist at the FMC and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, and a Professor of Medicine at the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of of Medicine. Dr. Flemons graduated from the University of Alberta in 1984, completed his Internal Medicine and Respiratory Medicine training in 1990. His leadership within Alberta Health Services has led to a number of important initiatives, from the development of four regional patient safety policies (Disclosing, Reporting, Just & Trusting Culture, and Informing) and a regional guideline on the management of serious adverse events, to the implementation of a new electronic safety learning reporting system and the establishment of a Patient / Family Safety Council. Dr Flemons also led in the creation of a regional patient advocacy program that assisted patients who had experienced adverse events and more effectively dealt with patient concerns about their health care.
