A new catalog consisting of 333 patient safety programs has been introduced by AHRQ.   A variety of topics are searchable to assist in locating patient safety education and training.   Each topic is provided with links directly to various educational providers.

Available directly from the AHRQ website, topics can be searched by mode of delivery (such as classroom, self-directed, or web-based), target audience, content, reach, and certification applicability. Topics include TeamSTEPPS, patient satisfaction, culture of safety, handoffs, discharge, and communication (just to name a few).

Take advantage of this capability to quickly locate valuable patient safety education and training resources.   Visit the AHRQ Patient Safety Education and Training Catalog.
