Collaboration is core to the Armstrong Institute’s mission to reduce preventable harm, improve patient outcomes and experience, and reduce waste in care delivery. Among those we most actively seek to engage with are faculty and staff across Johns Hopkins Medicine and The Johns Hopkins University. As part of our partnership with our Johns Hopkins colleagues, the institute:

  • Offers workshops, fellowships and other training opportunities to faculty, staff and students so that they have the tools to lead safety and quality projects on their own
  • Coordinates quality and safety improvement efforts across the Johns Hopkins Health System
  • Convenes and supports clinical communities—peer-driven networks organized by discipline or medical setting to devise solutions to quality and patient safety challenges
  • Awards up to $100,000 a year in small grants to help advance promising safety and quality research by Johns Hopkins investigators.
  • Measures performance in quality and safety, and makes data readily available across Johns Hopkins Medicine
  • Supports the scholarly activity of Hopkins researchers to advance the science of safety

This section of web pages was created to provide resources specifically for our Johns Hopkins Medicine colleagues as they seek to become more involved in the work of patient safety and quality. A Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED) password may be required to view some of this information.
