AHRQ Joins Partners in Patient Safety Awareness Week Activities

For Patient Safety Awareness Week 2019, AHRQ is working with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and other partners to raise awareness about the importance of improving safety in ambulatory settings beyond the hospital. As the Nation’s patient safety agency, AHRQ is supporting this event with a wide variety of activities. Plan to join us throughout the week:

  • Register for the free webcast, “Advancing Patient Safety Beyond the Hospital,” on Wednesday, March 13 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET. Jeff Brady, M.D., director of AHRQ’s Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, and Lisa Schilling, R.N., vice president for Quality, Safety and Clinical Effectiveness at Stanford Health Care, will talk about the state of safety in ambulatory settings. Tejal Gandhi, M.D., IHI’s Chief Clinical and Safety Officer, will moderate the discussion.
  • Read Dr. Brady’s Patient Safety Awareness Week blog and watch his video message.
  • Join the Twitter Chat, “Improving Diagnosis: A Foundation for Safe Care” on Thursday, March 14, from 12-1 p.m. ET. Use hashtag #PSAW19 to participate in the conversation. The chat is co-hosted by IHI and our partner the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine.
  • Follow us daily on @AHRQNews, Facebook and LinkedIn. We will be highlighting select AHRQ resources that can help clinicians, patients and families make care safer in ambulatory settings.
