Perceptions on Barriers to Reporting Wrongdoing
You are invited to participate in a research project being conducted by a graduate nursing student from Western Governors University. Ashleigh Gonzalez, RN is conducting research to examine the most prevalent barriers of reporting wrongdoing amongst registered nurses (RNs).
Description of the project:
This project seeks to understand the barriers to reporting wrongdoing identified by RNs. By gaining insight amongst the barriers, interventions and changes can be implemented to alleviate the challenges. By alleviating the impediments, reporting wrongdoing may become more accepted by RNs. Accountability by RNs and healthcare organizations gaining knowledge of wrongdoing will help to facilitate improving patient safety and quality care. Partaking in this research study entails completing a brief anonymous electronic survey.
Benefits and Risks of this study:
The potential benefits from this study include the identification of barriers to reporting wrongdoing which may include the influence of personal feelings, actions, reactions and impacts caused by culture or healthcare organizations. The identification of these barriers can ultimately be corrected, thus improving patient safety and quality care. There will be no direct benefit from participation. Participation is completely voluntary and anonymous. There is no identified risk to the participant.
Anonymity will be maintained throughout this entire study. There is absolutely no identified information during this study. Survey answers are not connected or associated with any participant.
