Reducing Hazards in Patient Care Workgroup Overview

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

This workgroup focuses on reducing hazard in patient care through the coordination of Federal efforts to conduct research on patient safety and by piloting safety improvement strategies. Currently, it serves as a clearinghouse for the patient safety measures being implemented by each Federal organization. Members currently share information on grant announcements for AHRQ and HRSA and serve as members or liaisons to the HHS Patient Safety Task Force, which seeks to develop a common reporting interface and data structure on end-stage renal disease for all HHS agencies. In addition the group is working to develop a validated Patient Safety Culture Assessment.
