Dear Potential Participant;

You are invited to participate in a study entitled The Relationship between Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) and a Culture of Safety. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between EBP and a culture of safety with the ultimate objective of improving patient outcomes. Your participation is completely voluntary, and if you begin participation and choose to not complete it, you are free to not continue without any adverse consequences. Any data you submitted to that point will remain in the study.

If you agree to participate in this study, please note the following information:

·         The online survey will take less than 30 minutes to complete.

·         Your responses to the survey will be completely anonymous.

We know of no known risks to this study, other than becoming a little tired of answering the questions. If this happens, you are free to take a break and return to the survey to finish it. Once you have submitted the survey information, please note that your data are no longer retrievable, given that the survey responses are anonymous.  There may be no benefits of participating for you, but your participation may help us learn more about what we know about the relationship between EBP and a culture of safety.
