Physician Practice Patient Safety Assessment, Phase 2: Tool Development


Recognizing the need to improve the safety of patients receiving care in doctor's offices, the Fund supported the development and pilot implementation of the Physician Practice Patient Safety Assessment tool. This survey instrument is designed to enhance physicians' awareness of patient safety issues, including factors that make a practice safer. Building on the results of that project and other Fund-supported work on hospital safety, the research team will develop and pilot-test three evidence-based tools to help physicians prevent medical errors and improve overall patient safety. These tools will be disseminated to group practices around the country and made available free of charge through a dedicated Web site. The Health Research and Educational Trust will provide in-kind cofunding.
