Performance Improvement 2004. Patient safety training & outplacement program


This feasibility study sought to determine the feasibility of establishing, operating, and maintaining an applied patient safety training and outplacement program. The study strongly supports the concept of and need for a patient safety training program; however, key informants did not agree on who should participate, what the program should look like, or how it should be implemented. The study laid out the leading alternatives AHRQ must chose among with respect to participants, educational format and curriculum, desired impact, and implementation.
