Many pharmacies using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS™) Community Pharmacy Survey have expressed interest in comparing their results to other pharmacies. In response, AHRQ has established the Community Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture Database. This database is a central repository for survey data from pharmacies that have administered the AHRQ patient safety culture survey instrument.
