AHRQ Patient Safety Evidence Reports

AHRQ released the Making Healthcare Safer report in 2013. Included in this report as separate downloadable chapters are 22  patient safety strategies (including VT prevention, medicine reconciliation, presure ulcer prevention, team training). Most of these strategies have  strong evidence behind them, and the others with less available evidence show promise but are not practised widely. The full list of strategies is available here.
