The Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS) was established but is a separate organizational entity from the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF). Effective May 1, 2017, NPSF merged with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). They created CBPPS to advance, standardize, and promote patient safety knowledge competencies for health care professionals. To this end, completing the rigorously designed Certified Professional in Patient Safety (CPPS) exam attests to candidates’ knowledge of essential patient safety competencies. Upon this time, the board confers the CPPS credential.
Those attaining the CPPS designation represent a group of committed professionals from across health care who are determined to advance the patient safety field and make the health care system safer for all. To learn more, go to www.ihi.org/cpps.
