Making Health Care Safer: new report on patient safety

From the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality:

“Making Health Care Safer ll, An Updated Critical Analysis of the Evidence for Patient Safety Practices, a new report by AHRQ, encourages health care providers to adopt patient safety strategies that are proven to be effective. The new report emphasizes evidence about implementation, adoption and the context in which safety strategies have been used. This helps clinicians understand what works, how to apply it, and under what circumstances it works best so they can adapt it to local needs. It also identifies gaps where more research can propel patient safety efforts further. Widespread adoption of the encouraged strategies has the potential to save hundreds—if not thousands—of lives, the authors estimate.”
