The Patient Safety Coaches Academy (PSCA) was founded in 2016 to enhance the ability of patient care teams -- with the guidance of Patient Safety Coaches -- to adopt and consistently apply the safe care practices of high reliability, high-performance organizations. The patient safety goal: harm-free healthcare. The PSCA provides information to assist Patient Safety Coaches, and those who aspire to become a Patient Safety Coach, to enhance the Knowledge, Skills, and Ability (KSAs) necessary to be an effective Patient Safety Coach. The PSCA also provides helpful information for hospital/health system leaders on how to successfully implement a new Patient Safety Coach program.  In 2021, the PSCA will begin offering Hospital-Proctored Patient Safety Coach Certification to advance the important contribution Patient Safety Coaches make to eliminating preventable patient harm. Achieving PSC Certification through the Patient Safety Coaches Academy will help Patient Safety Coaches (and PSC aspirants) 1) enhance their communication, team building, and coaching skills, 2) be recognized as a patient safety leader among their peers, and 3) learn the 5 Disciplines of Performance Excellence that facilitate the achievement of harm-free healthcare.
