AHRQ Highlights National Patient Safety Awareness Week and Launches Patient Safety Resources

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has issued a list of activities to celebrate National Patient Safety Awareness Week.  In addition, AHRQ has launched two new programs directed towards patient safety: 1) an initiative to provide resources and guidance on how to implement effective team-based opioid management strategies in primary care through health care practices participating in the AHRQ-funded “Six Building Blocks” program; and 2) a free new mobile question building app to help patients be more engaged in their own health care and to help make health care office visits more efficient.  To read the AHRQ list of National Patient Safety Awareness Week activities, use the first link below.  To read the AHRQ announcement and summary of its Six Building Blocks opioid program, use the second link below.  To read the AHRQ announcement and summary of its new free mobile patient question building app, use the last link below.
