A national technical assistance conference call conducted on March 31, 2010, provides users with an overview of the development of the survey. In addition, two professionals share their success and challenges in survey administration from both a regional perspective and an individual nursing home, and discuss how to maximize survey response and use survey results to develop action plans to target safety culture improvement initiatives.
