The Role of Clinical Learning Environments In
Preparing New Clinicians to Engage in Patient Safety
The National Collaborative for Improving the Clinical Learning Environment (NCICLE) presents this guidance document to stimulate efforts to rapidly engage new clinicians in patient safety activities. The members of NCICLE believe that each new clinician has an individual responsibility to engage in and promote patient safety. However, they also recognize that CLEs need to equip new clinicians with the skills needed to optimize patient safety throughout their careers. This guidance document focuses primarily on the health system’s responsibility to successfully engage new clinicians in patient safety during their first year of practice.
