Patient safety grants available for health care providers
The Cardinal Health Foundation will award more than $1 million to help U.S. hospitals, health systems, and community health clinics improve patient safety and health care quality. Grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000 will be awarded to programs that improve the quality and safety of patient care, with priority consideration being given to programs that reduce hospital-acquired infections and improve medication safety.
Applicants organizations are encouraged to: clearly identify the high-priority safety issue to be addressed; secure significant involvement and support from senior-most leadership; demonstrate financial investment in the program through operating support or in-kind contributions of time and materials; incorporate nationally determined best practices; involve multiple groups within the community, and other health care organizations; include clear measures to assure that improvements can be sustained over time; develop programs that can be replicated at other organizations; and address at least one of the National Quality Forum’s seven priority areas, which include: patient and family engagement, population health, safety, palliative care, care coordination, patient-focused care and, overuse.
Letters of intent are due October 31st. For complete program guidelines, click here.
