ACP-ASIM launches project to improve patient safety

ACP-ASIM has launched a three-year initiative to help reduce medical errors and improve patient safety in the ambulatory care setting.

As part of the effort, which will be funded by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the College will develop a patient safety curriculum that will be offered at chapter and regional meetings. ACP-ASIM will also develop an online forum to help practicing physicians develop local strategies to improve office-based systems that affect medical care.

Officials involved in the project said the College plans to examine areas like medication errors, communication between physicians and patients, team training, and the use of information technology in office systems.

For more information on the project, contact Christel Mottur-Pilson, PhD, Director of ACP-ASIM's Scientific Policy Department and the project's principal investigator, at 800-523-1546, ext. 2838.
