Application opens for 2022 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Awards
The Joint Commission, in partnership with National Quality Forum, is now accepting applications for the 2022 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Awards. The annual awards program recognizes major achievements by individuals and organizations to improve patient safety and healthcare quality.
Awards are presented in three categories:
- Individual Achievement
- National Level Innovation in Patient Safety and Quality
- Local Level Innovation in Patient Safety and Quality
The individual award is intended for nominees who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and scholarship in patient safety and healthcare quality through a substantive body of work. Initiatives or projects eligible for the National and Local Level awards will have involved successful system changes or interventions that make the environment of care safer or that advocate on the patient’s behalf. These innovative efforts may address new technologies, protocols, procedures, education, organizational culture, legislation, the media, patient advocacy, systems theory, or another area. Organizations applying must provide at minimum one year (12 months) of data supporting the improvement made by the featured initiative.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 14.
