The AHA has worked with hospitals and health systems to share tools that help build a culture of patient safety, adopt best practices around infection prevention and other critical safety topics, and share learnings so that hospitals can learn from each other’s experiences in improving safety.
Project Firstline, which offers hospitals and health systems the tools and resources needed to engage all stakeholders on infection control – from bedside nurses to administrators to environmental staff – to identify areas of improvement, commit to an action plan, monitor practices, and adjust as needed.
Team Training, which is designed to improve teamwork skills and practices that are essential to delivering safe, coordinated care.
Living Learning Network, is a 24/7 online community which provides an excellent opportunity for hospitals to share immediate needs and successful strategies in real-time in response to COVID-19 and overall patient safety to increase the quality of care.
Age Friendly Health Systems, which is a multidisciplinary project aimed at addressing the particular needs and concerns, including safety concerns, in caring for older patients.
Palliative Care strategies to help patients living with serious illnesses not only manage their symptoms and pain, but also set health goals, stay on track to meet those goals and live their best lives.
AHA Quest for Quality prize, which honors hospitals and health systems that have made extraordinary improvements in the delivery of safe, high-quality care and seeks to share their strategies with other hospitals that seek to improve quality.
Hospitals Against Violence (HAV), an AHA initiative to share examples and best practices with the field, with a particular emphasis on workplace violence prevention.
