-- Initiative E: Increase Effectiveness through Extended Presence

-- Initiative F: Governor's Office of Healthcare Reform (GOHCR) Collaboration

-- Initiative G: Data Collaboration

-- Initiative H: Patient Safety Methods Training

-- Initiative I: Nursing Home Data Analysis

-- Initiative J: PA-PSRS System Enhancements

-- Initiative K: Maintain Success of Patient Safety Advisory
