Safe Practices
QuickStart Toolkit Overview

TMIT has developed QuickStart Packages™ to aid leaders in the adoption of the NQF 34 Safe Practices for Better Healthcare at your organization.

A QuickStart Package™ is a set of multimedia resources that will aid in the implementation of the NQF Safe Practices for Better Healthcare. We have developed a QuickStart Package™ for each of the 34 safe practices. These packages contain:
  • A slide set outlining the history of the practices, the harmonization effort culminating in their creation, data to support the problem addressed, the practice, and evidence-based implementation examples that can be used in your organization.
  • A set of videos that can be downloaded and used in your presentations. They will include explanations of the problem, practice, and implementation aspects of the practice, humorous clips, and real success stories from the front line to help tell the story of the practice and drive adoption.
  • A collection of peer-reviewed articles and resources that support the practice
Get started with implementation at your organization by selecting a Safe Practice through the provided links and downloading the full QuickStart Package™.
