Patient-Driven Medication Safety Learning Laboratory in Care Transitions

This AHRQ-funded initiative aims to better understand barriers and facilitators to preventing, identifying and resolving medication safety problems in transitions across levels of care within the healthcare system. We will utilize a combination of patient and caregiver surveys and interviews, workflow analyses, and insights from clinical data. Following data collection and synthesis, we will work with patients, providers, and staff from across the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) and with the Community Advisory Board to design prototype interventions to overcome medication safety problems for older adults during transitions of care.
