Assessment of the AHRQ patient safety initiative : focus on implementation and dissemination evaluation report III (2004-2005)( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RAND has contracted with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to perform a longitudinal evaluation of the full scope of AHRQ's patient safety activities and to provide regular feedback to support the continuing improvement of the initiative over a four-year evaluation period. This interim report presents an update on the work RAND has performed during FY 2007 for the practice diffusion assessment. The assessment encompasses five specific analytic components: (1) development of a survey questionnaire to use for assessing adoption of the safe practices endorsed by the National Quality Foundation, (2) community studies of patient safety practice adoption and related activities, (3) continued analysis of trends in patient outcomes related to safety, (4) lessons from hospitals' use of patient safety tools developed by AHRQ, and (5) a second fielding of the hospital adverse event reporting system survey

Assessment of the national patient safety initiative : context and baseline : evaluation report 1( )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 2002, RAND contracted with the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to serve as the evaluation center for its national patient safety initiative. The evaluation center is responsible for performing a longitudinal evaluation of AHRQ's patient safety activities and for providing regular feedback to support the continuing improvement of this initiative over a four-year project period. This report presents findings on the history leading to the AHRQ patient safety initiative, the start-up of the initiative, and early activities through September 2003. It focuses on assessing the context and goals that were the foundation for the initiative and documents the baseline status of the activities being undertaken. The evaluation found the agency has done an impressive job in starting the patient safety initiative, despite unreasonable high expectations and insufficient funding. The evaluators identify four priorities for AHRQ that they believe will have the strongest positive impact on the future of the patient safety initiative: designing interim objectives to pull the health care system toward the long-term goal of reducing errors by 50 percent; developing a national patient safety data repository; participating in active public-private partnerships and supporting health care organizations in their implementation activities; and balancing research and adoption activities
Assessment of the AHRQ patient safety initiative : moving from research to practice evaluation report II (2003-2004)( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is carrying out its congressional mandate to establish a patient-safety research and development initiative to help health care providers reduce medical errors and improve patient safety. In September 2003, AHRQ entered into a four-year contract with the RAND Corporation to serve as the Patient Safety Evaluation Center for its patient safety initiative. The evaluation center is responsible for performing a longitudinal evaluation of the full scope of AHRQ₂s patient safety activities and for providing regular feedback to support the continuing improvement of this initiative over the four-year project period. This report covers the period October 2003 through September 2004. It is the second of what will be four annual reports prepared by RAND during the formative evaluation. It builds on the preceding evaluation report, which covers the period October 2002 through September 2003. This report provides an update on the policy context that frames the AHRQ patient safety initiative, documents the evolution and current status of the priorities and activities being undertaken in the initiative, and lays out a framework and possible measures for evaluating the effects of the initiative on patient outcomes and stakeholders other than patients. Implications of the evaluation findings are discussed with respect to future AHRQ policy, programming, and research, and suggestions are presented for strengthening AHRQ activities as the initiative moves forward. The content and format of each report are designed to provide a stable structure for the longitudinal evaluation; the results of each year₂s assessment contribute to a cumulative record of the initiative₂s evolution. The contents of this report will be of interest to national and state policymakers, health care organizations and clinical practitioners, patient-advocacy organizations, health researchers, and others with responsibilities for ensuring that patients are not harmed by the health care they receive
Evaluation of the Patient Safety Improvement Corps : experiences of the first two groups of trainees( )

An evaluation of the first two years of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and Veterans' Affairs' Patient Safety Improvement Corps program for improving health care professionals' patient-safety knowledge and skills. Data were collected through in-person interviews at the final training session, and through telephone follow-up interviews one year later. Overall, participants valued the tools and skills they learned and continue to use
Assessment of the AHRQ patient safety initiative : final report : evaluation report IV( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 2002, AHRQ entered into a four-year contract with the RAND Corporation to serve as the patient safety evaluation center for its patient safety initiative. The evaluation center is responsible for performing a longitudinal evaluation of the full scope of AHRQ's patient safety activities and for providing regular feedback to support the continuing improvement of this initiative over the four-year project period. This is the fourth and final evaluation report prepared by RAND. It presents new results for the period from October 2005 through September 2006, synthesizes the full evaluation findings over the four-year evaluation period, and discusses how AHRQ activities could be strengthened as the initiative moves forward. It also describes how AHRQ's strategy and activities developed over time, the new knowledge generated by funded projects, and the contributions of various components of the initiative to patient safety. Finally, it presents updated baseline data on selected outcome measures and discusses options for ongoing monitoring of effects on both practices and outcomes

Patient safety and quality : an evidence-based handbook for nurses( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nurses play a vital role in improving the safety and quality of patient care -- not only in the hospital or ambulatory treatment facility, but also of community-based care and the care performed by family members. Nurses need know what proven techniques and interventions they can use to enhance patient outcomes. To address this need, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), with additional funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has prepared this comprehensive, 1,400-page, handbook for nurses on patient safety and quality -- Patient Safety and Quality: An Evidence-Based Handbook for Nurses. (AHRQ Publication No. 08-0043)."--Online AHRQ blurb, http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/nurseshdbk
A review of current state-level adverse medical event reporting practices : toward national standards by Megan K Beckett( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nearly half of states require or request the reporting of adverse medical events. In 2003, the Institute of Medicine (Patient Safety: Achieving a New Standard of Care) called for the use of consistent standards for medical error reporting. Standardization will facilitate the creation of a national patient safety repository that aggregates data from states and enable policymakers to track trends in adverse events nationally. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is leading the national Patient Safety Initiative to combat medical errors. This report summarizes the results of an AHRQ sponsored 50-state survey of adverse reporting systems in 2004. It documents the consistency of information that states are collecting as part of their reporting systems, identifies issues related to establishing a national patient safety repository, and presents an action plan to implement a standardized nationwide system elicited from an external advisory panel that was convened explicitly for this purpose
