Patient safety toolkit

US body the Institute for Healthcare Improvement has published a “toolkit” for improving patient safety. It includes documents on improving teamwork and communication, tools to help health practitioners understand the underlying issues that can cause errors, and guidance about how to create and maintain reliable systems.

Each of the nine tools includes a short description, instructions, an example, and a blank template. Free registration is required to access the toolkit.
