Joint Commission, National Quality Forum Now Accepting Applicants for the 2008 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Awards
Date:2/14/2008

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. and WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Joint Commission and the National Quality Forum (NQF) are accepting applications for the 2008 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Awards, which recognize individuals and health care organizations that are making significant contributions in improving the safety and quality of patient care.

Nomination forms for the John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Awards are available at http://www.jointcommission.org and http://www.qualityforum.org. The deadline for nominations is April 14, 2008.

The awards honor the memory of Dr. Eisenberg, a nationally recognized leader in health care quality improvement who advocated for health care -- based on a strong foundation of research -- that meets the needs and perspectives of patients. Dr. Eisenberg, who died in 2002, spearheaded national efforts to reduce medical errors and improve patient safety as director of the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

The John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Awards are presented each year, in up to four categories, including individual achievement and project-related achievements in research and innovation in patient safety and quality at both the national and local level. The accomplishments of award nominees must be focused on either improving patient safety or the quality of health care, leadership in advancing methods for measuring and reporting health care quality, expanding the public's capacity to evaluate the quality and safety of health care, and promoting health care choices based on information about safety and quality.

Awards are not necessarily given in each category every year and more than one award could be presented in a given category. An award panel of outside experts in patient safety and health care quality
