The Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety publishes guide for certified professionals seeking to recertify.
The Certified Professional in Patient Safety (CPPS) program certifies health care professionals who meet the competency requirements in the areas of patient safety science and human factors engineering, and who demonstrate the ability to apply this knowledge to effectively plan and implement patient safety initiatives.
The Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS), which oversees the credential, recently released a handbook for certified professionals planning to recertify.
The CPPS certification cycle is 3 years. Recertification requires certified professionals to fulfill continuing education (CE) requirements, or to sit for and pass the CPPS examination within 1 year prior to his or her certification expiration date.
