About IHI/NPSF

 

IHI/NPSF

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) began working together as one organization in May 2017. The newly formed entity is committed to using its combined knowledge and resources to focus and energize the patient safety agenda in order to build systems of safety across the continuum of care. To learn more about our trainings, resources, and practical applications, visit ihi.org/PatientSafety

The National Patient Safety Foundation founded the United for Safety Patient Campaign and Patient Safety Awareness Week, and this effort continues now as an initiative of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.
