Sudan Teaching Hospitals Use AHRQ’s Patient Safety Culture Survey and TeamSTEPPS
Two hospitals in the northeast African country of Sudan—Omdurman Teaching Hospital and the National Ribat University Hospital—are using AHRQ tools to improve patient safety.
Omdurman Hospital used AHRQ’s Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture, which was translated into Arabic in 2008. As a result, and through efforts of members of the Middle East and North Africa Regional Network for Patient Safety Culture initiative, the Arabic version of the survey is also being used at facilities in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Palestinian Territories, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar.
“Having tools available in Arabic opened doors for implementation in additional countries besides Sudan,” said Asaad Mohamedtaha, Ph.D., M.Sc., M.H.M., founder of the patient safety culture initiative. Dr. Mohamedtaha translated the survey to Arabic and adapted it to fit Arabic-speaking countries while conducting health management research at Omdurman Hospital. The facility is now considered to have set the standard for patient safety culture for teaching hospitals in Arabic-speaking countries in the Middle East and North Africa, he said.
