How your gift helps improve patient safety and improve the quality of care
The research and improvement programs of the Armstrong Institute directly benefit patients by reducing medical errors and complications, improving clinical outcomes, and delivering care that treats patients with the dignity and respect that they deserve. Examples of these programs include:
- reducing the rates of bloodstream infections and venous thromboembolisms that patients contract in health care environments
- preventing avoidable hospital readmissions
- identifying the sources of diagnostic errors and creating tools to reduce their likelihood
- developing and implementing strategies that help clinicians to fully engage patients and family members as true partners on the care team
The Armstrong Institute has been successful in reducing major types of medical errors, standardizing the approach to patient care, and spreading successful programs on a national and international scale.
With your help, we can continue to make major strides in advancing our research, preventing human suffering and providing a better quality of life for the world. Thank you for your partnership.
