PPRNet - Primary (Care) Practices Research Network
Dissemination of the PPRNet Model for Improving Medication Safety in Primary Care
(also known as MS-TRIP or Medication Safety-Translating Research into Practice 2)
Improving medication safety is a fundamental priority for transforming the U.S. health care system. Few improvement strategies have been tested in primary care, and an advanced understanding of how best to implement safe practices beyond the inpatient setting is needed. The overall goal of the project was to decrease preventable prescribing and monitoring medication errors in primary care practices across the United States through dissemination of a medication-safety focused quality improvement model. Findings from this project have enhanced the medication safety knowledge base in primary care with potential impact on safe medication prescribing and monitoring for hundreds of thousands of primary care patients across the country. This project was funded from 9/30/2010-9/29/2013.
