2012 Preliminary Comparative Results

Results from the 55 U.S. pharmacies that participated in a pilot study of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture in early 2012 are provided in this document. The results presented here are from limited numbers of staff and pharmacies and were not derived from a statistically selected sample of U.S. pharmacies.

At this time, there is no central repository to which pharmacies can submit data for comparative purposes. However, AHRQ plans to support a U.S. comparative database for the pharmacy survey that will provide more extensive comparative data from pharmacies willing to voluntarily submit data from the survey. More details will be forthcoming from AHRQ about when data submission will begin and when updated comparative results will be available.
