A strong patient safety culture (PSC) may be associated with improved patient outcomes in hospitals. Dr Hessels and colleagues report on the first known study to link PSC directly to missed nursing care and patient outcomes. Despite the growth in the availability of palliative care, referrals to palliative care are often underutilized or delayed. Interdisciplinary rounds are an effective way of improving the time to palliative care referral and decreasing LOS and cost. Another article in this issue describes a system-based participatory study to improve CNL onboarding process, role differentiation, performance, recruitment, and development.
