AHRQ Technical Brief Recommends New Research in Ambulatory Care Safety Practices

A recently released AHRQ-funded technical brief explored fundamental questions about patient safety practices in ambulatory care, including which evidence-based practices used in hospitals may be applicable to the ambulatory care setting, as well as identified promising safety initiatives that have not been broadly implemented or studied beyond a single ambulatory care center. The brief found significant gaps exist in ambulatory safety research, including a notable lack of studies on patient engagement and timely and accurate diagnosis. The brief recommended conducting prospective, large-scale studies in diverse ambulatory settings to develop and test ambulatory safety interventions. Access the brief, Patient Safety in Ambulatory Settings, and a recent AHRQ Views blog post, “Taking Steps To Protect Safety in Ambulatory Care.”
