Abstract

This study describes the development and validation of the TRAnsitional patient safety Climate Evaluation (TRACE) questionnaire, measuring transitional patient safety climate from the perspective of general practitioners and hospital physicians. Patient safety climate reflects the professionals' perception of the organizational patient safety culture. In the development of the TRACE we adjusted existing questionnaires on patient safety culture. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was performed. Internal consistency and correlations between factors and a global transitional patient safety rating were calculated. In total, 162 questionnaires were completed (response 23%; general practice: N=97, hospital physicians: N=65). Analysis of all respondents did not provide an interpretable factor solution. However, the EFA on the results of hospital physicians revealed 4 relevant factors: (1) Collaboration, (2) Speaking up, (3) Communication on transitional incidents and improvement measures, and (4) Transitional patient safety management. The internal consistency of these factors was good for hospital respondents (0.71 to 0.87) and fair to acceptable for general practices' respondents (0.63 to 0.72). Although the TRACE questionnaire did not provide a solid factor structure in a combined sample of general practice and hospital respondents, the factors found reliable in hospital setting had acceptable reliability in general practice setting.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 February 2018.
All research outputs
#6,791,838
of 12,532,910 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
#1,837
of 2,505 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#146,502
of 342,736 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
#45
of 52 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,532,910 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,505 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.2. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 342,736 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 52 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
