Promoting Safety and Quality Through Human Resource Practices: Executive Summary – Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality [US] – August 2011

“The purpose of this Executive Summary is to provide an introduction to the methodology and summary findings of an ACTION Task Order funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), “Promoting Safety and Quality Through Human Resources Practices,” which began in late 2008. The purpose of this research, managed by the Health Research & Education Trust (an affiliate of the American Hospital Association), was to study how health care organizations can use innovative human resources practices (also called high-performance work practices, or HPWPs) to promote safety and quality in health care. Among the outcomes of the study is the AHRQ document, Using Workforce Practices to Guide Quality Improvement: A Guide for Hospitals. A key component of the study was development of a predictive model linking particular HPWPs and quality outcomes in health care.”
