Building Capacity for Change

AHRQ has developed tools that can help organizations build the capacity for change to make health care safer. By understanding patient safety concepts and how team and individual behaviors and attitudes influence safety culture, teams build the foundations for a future of safer care. Training tools and resources are available to help staff build this knowledge and develop the skills that influence organizational culture and lead to sustained improvements in safety.
