People, Priorities and Learning Together (PPLT)

The People, Priorities and Learning Together (PPLT) initiative brings together evidence-based practices that have been part of the work of the MOCPS and Missouri Hospital Association.

PPLT offers options for hospitals to select components of the initiative to fit their own unique needs for quality and safety efforts, providing options to select components of most value to the individual hospital. In addition to opportunities to learn the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP), TeamSTEPPS, Just Culture, and other processes to improve teamwork and communication, participants may join clinical collaboratives, including the national CUSP/Stop BSI and CUSP/CAUTI projects focused on prevention of blood stream infections and catheter-associated blood stream infections.
