WHO Patient Safety would like to share with you the findings of the first completed research project funded through the Small Grants Programme. In this study, a UK safety culture tool was adapted and tested in primary care practices in New Zealand to discover the tool’s adaptability and acceptability in the New Zealand context. The success of the project is demonstrated by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners’ approval of the tool as part of its Maintenance of Professional Standards recertification programme and making the tool available on the College website for use in any practice to improve safety culture. The project provided the principal investigator with the opportunities to develop valuable research experience, skills and networks.
