Abstract:

In October 2009, AHRQ launched the Patient Safety and Medical Liability (PSML) Initiative to address four goals: (1) putting patient safety first by reducing preventable injuries, (2) fostering better communication between doctors and patients, (3) ensuring fair and timely compensation for medical injuries while reducing malpractice litigation, and (4) reducing liability premiums. Under the PSML initiative, AHRQ funded 13 planning grants and 7 demonstration grants; the goal was to help States and health systems seek comprehensive solutions that improve patient safety and address the underlying causes of the malpractice problem. This publication, Advances in Patient Safety and Medical Liability, presents contributions and findings from the AHRQ-funded projects. In addition to a prologue, the volume includes two commentaries and nine papers, organized into two primary themes: improving communication and improving patient safety.
