Other Patient Safety Resources

As the lead Federal agency for patient safety research, AHRQ also has many non-PSO patient safety resources on their Patient Safety site. The resources address topics ranging from improving diagnostic safety to reducing healthcare-associated infections.

The resources also include research-based tools to get your team on board and help with understanding and use of core concepts of patient safety.

Also included are patient and clinician videos and mobile apps that help patients learn how to engage with their clinicians to reduce the risk of medical errors and hospital readmissions.

Finally, the site includes an extensive list of patient safety resources by specific healthcare setting, ranging from hospitals and emergency departments to ambulatory care sites, long-term care sites, and dialysis centers.
