In the Spotlight

A Patient Safety Toolkit for Family Practices
A challenge to advancing safety and quality improvement initiatives in primary care is the limited availability of evidence about effective improvement strategies for care delivered outside the hospital. A new Journal of Patient Safety article aims to address this need by presenting a collection of readily applicable tools for measuring and improving safety in the family practice setting.

Deprescribing: Is Less Medicine the Best Medicine?
Learn how an innovative program in Ottawa, Canada, is demonstrating how guidelines for deprescribing — reducing or stopping medications that may harm or no longer benefit a patient — decreases the likelihood of an adverse event, and reduces the financial burden of paying for a multitude of medications.

Leadership and Vision for a Culture of Safety
This recent NEJM Catalyst article by IHI Chief Clinical and Safety Officer, Dr. Tejal Gandhi, discusses six key areas to focus on when working to build a culture of safety.

All-Cause Harm Patient Safety Measure
This new study published in the Journal of Patient Safety builds on previous work in which the authors developed a single hospital-level measure of healthcare-associated harm derived from trigger-based analysis of electronic health record data. The new study shows that the previously developed measure is strongly correlated with key safety indicators related to patient safety culture, employee engagement, and patient experience.
