Dr. Natalie Dickson

Dr. Natalie Dickson, a graduate of The University of the West Indies, Mona, has recently been named a Certified Professional in Patient Safety (CPPS) by The Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS). Dickson is chief medical officer at Tennessee Oncology, one of the United States’ largest, community-based cancer care specialists.

“Earning this credential attests to Dr. Dickson’s professional competency in patient safety science and application,” said Tejal K. Gandhi, MD, MPH, CPPS, President, CBPPS. “This achievement demonstrates her expertise in this critical discipline and positions her among those committed to and leading patient safety work.”

Dickson earned the credential in part by passing a rigorous, evidence-based examination that tests candidates on their competency in patient safety science and application.

“At Tennessee Oncology, our patients come first,” said Dickson. “We continue to focus on patient experience. It goes hand in hand with patient safety, especially in light of the many changes and increasing costs in cancer care today.”

With the conferring of certification, Dickson is privileged to use the CPPS credential.
