A study recently published in the Journal of Graduate Medical Education examined if residents’ perception of how safe they thought it was to take interpersonal risks in their work environments influenced their overall satisfaction with their clinical learning environments. Researchers studied this perception, known as psychological safety (PS), by extracting data from Learners’ Perceptions Surveys taken by more than 13,000 residents who rotated through a department of Veterans Affairs healthcare facility from 2011 to 2014. The researchers found that PS was strongly associated with how residents rated their satisfaction with their clinical learning experience across four areas—learning, faculty and preceptors, personal, and systems and processes for handling medical errors.
