Fair and Just Culture

In embracing the concept of a fair and just culture, Emory Healthcare leadership is embracing an opportunity to bring our core values into expression and to help us keep our promise to our patients. We know that in order for staff, physicians and leaders to have the greatest impact on patient care and achieve the highest level of excellence possible, they must feel compelled and supported to speak about problems, errors, conflicts and misunderstandings in an environment where to do so with curiosity, honesty and respect is both a shared goal and a shared responsibility.
