The purpose of the Patient Safety Coaches Academy is to provide standardized state-of-the-art training to help prepare healthcare professionals working in hospital settings to be effective patient safety coaches, advocates and mentors leading to the provision of Harm-free Healthcare. The PSCA was created in 2016 in response to a growing emergence of patient safety coaching programs in hospitals, with a wide variation in structure, training and roles and responsibilities. In 2019, the PSCA will begin offering Patient Safety Coach Certification to advance the professionalism and safe care practices of Patient Safety Coaches.

High Reliability Safe Care Practices
Major theme parks in the U.S. like Universal Studios in Orlando and Disney's Magic Kingdom entertain millions of guest each year experiencing very few significant safety events. Their high reliability performance is based on a strong culture of safety and the personal accountability of every staff member for their own safety, the safety of their fellow team members, and the 50,000 to 60,000 guests that visit their park each day.
