Patient Safety

VA/UM Patient Safety Program

Sanjay Saint, MD, directs the VA/UM Patient Safety Program, which was established with funds from AHRQ in 2001.  The overall goal of the Program is to assemble interdisciplinary teams of investigators, and mentor junior clinician investigators, to conduct creative, high impact research in the following areas:  (1) preventing hospital and nursing home adverse events; (2) enhancing patient safety in ambulatory care; (3) improving medical decision making by physicians and patients as an error reduction strategy; and (4) improving our understanding of the reliability and validity of error assessment.  The Program's Web site can be found at*
