Abstract:

Background: Patient safety is a relatively new concern in healthcare organizations. The most widely used approach for managing patient safety in this sector is the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle, which is a powerful tool for quality management that maximizes organizational efficiency while also improving patient outcomes. The present study aimed to assess the effect of training program regarding the use of PDCA process of quality on nurse interns' practice regarding patient safety goals. The current study was carried out using a quasi-experimental design. 
Setting: All of Asir Hospital's inpatient wards in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where students complete their internship year, served as the study's training sites. 
Subject: A simple random sample of fifty nursing interns who graduated in the academic year (2021/ 2022) and completed their internship training year at Asir Hospital and gave their consent to be included in the study. Data was gathered using an observation checklist designed for nursing interns. 
Results: Prior to the program's implementation, all nursing interns had inadequate practice level, but following the program, the greatest proportion of nurse interns (83.3%) had adequate level of practice. 
Conclusion: It is concluded that the training program improved nurse interns' practice regarding application of PDCA for patient safety goals. 
Recommendation: It is recommended that nurse interns should be attending certified training courses in PDCA.
