Background and Objectives: Patient safety is crucial for promotion of healthcare quality and is monitored as an important parameter by all healthcare provider organizations worldwide. Nurses play a major role in maintaining and promoting patient safety due to the nature of their work. The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of patient safety education program on patient safety culture among nurses working in Ilam education-treatment centers.

Methods: In this experimental study, 40 nurses were selected from Ilam educational-treatment centers and randomly allocated to two groups of virtual patient safety education and lecture-based education. Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture questionnaire was completed by nurses of the two groups before and after patient safety education program. Statistical analysis was performed using Kolmogorov-Smirnov, independent t-, and paired t-tests. The significance level was considered less that 0.05.

Results: Patient safety culture was significantly improved in both virtual and lecture groups after educational intervention (p<0.01). In the virtual education group, the mean score of patient safety culture was higher than lecture group, and this difference was significant (p<0.01).

Conclusion: The findings of this study indicated that educational programs could be used by administrators of health service providers to improve patient safety culture among nurses. Also, providing patient safety educations as virtual or lecture both will be helpful.
