Transforming a Culture for Safety and Quality

Written by HRET staff member Cynthia Hedges Greising and AHA-NPSF Comprehensive Patient Safety Fellowship facilitor Shawn Foster, this article describes how past fellows are using the tools they learned during the year-long education program to improve patient safety in their facilities.

The AHA-NPSF Comprehensive Patient Safety Leadership Fellowship, created in 2001 by the AHA and the National Patient Safety Foundation, helps organizations embed evidence-based practices and inspire change. To date, 322 health care professionals representing 188 organizations have participated. Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, Conn., and Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J., are leveraging participation of multiple leaders to improve patient safety.

The writers interviewed several past fellows to see how they are leveraging the fellowship tools they learned to create patient safety cultures. Click "view item" below to read the entire article.
