About the Just Culture Initiative

The Just Culture Initiative

In 2015, the HQCA held a one-day symposium on just culture for a broad group of healthcare organizations in Alberta. Participants recognized that a just culture throughout the healthcare system will strengthen our collective commitment and ability to continually improve the safety and quality of care provided to Albertans. They recommended that the HQCA lead an initiative to develop a toolkit of resources to assist organizations to develop and spread a common approach to a just culture.


Thank you to the following organizations that have provided valuable input into the just culture website and resources. We value the opportunity to work together and learn from organizations with just culture initiatives in progress and others who want to contribute to a system-wide just culture.
