Pioneer, Engage, Collaborate
The Center has three primary objectives:
Pioneer a national patient safety research agenda with new approaches and technologies that builds and supports a patient safety research workforce across primary, ambulatory and tertiary care settings.
Engage partners from non-profit, corporate and government settings to innovate, lead and educate current and future practitioners.
Collaborate with leaders in patient safety and healthcare quality improvement to change the culture of healthcare delivery so that patient safety is first among the values for all practitioners and health delivery systems.
Making Care Safer
The Center's research has resulted in the implementation of a number of practices that have proven to prevent injuries and errors wherever a patient receives care - in the hospital, in the doctor's office, at the pharmacy, in the home or in long-term care facilities. Our Center investigators evaluate interventions, systems, and educational and public policies to improve the safety of patients.
