The AHA’s American Organization of Nurse Executives and Health Research & Educational Trust will host a March 14 webinar on “Partnering for Progress in Quality and Safety.” Participants will hear from two hospital nurse leaders that have used the HRET Hospital Improvement Innovation Network to improve quality and patient safety in their organizations. More than 1,600 hospitals in 32 states are collaborating in the HIIN to reduce all-cause patient harm by 20% and readmissions by 12% by September 2018.
