IHP 604 Module 3 Short Paper Critical Elements in the Execution of a Quality Plan
In the patient safety primers, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) underscores the essential impact of leaders on creating, sustaining, and monitoring organizational quality. Measures of quality success are reported and available for comparison. The patient safety primers provide foundational information that can be used to craft an organization's quality plan. Topics include reporting of events such as falls and infections, how to measure patient safety and quality, and methods to report and monitor both events and process and performance improvement activities (Joshi, Ransom, E., Nash, Ransom, S., 2014).
