American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

ISCR Enrollment Webinars

The Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, in collaboration with the American College of Surgeons, is now recruiting hospitals for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Safety Program for Improving Surgical Care and Recovery, a collaborative program to enhance the recovery of surgical patients. The project is funded and guided by the AHRQ. 

Hospitals are encouraged to begin enrollment now and complete it by February 15, 2018, in order to participate in the 12-month program that begins March 1, 2018. The focus during this period is orthopedic procedures (joint replacement [hip and knee], and hip fracture) and colorectal surgery. As part of this program, hospitals will have access to evidence-based enhanced recovery pathways, virtual simulation and in-person learning opportunities, and other resources to help your team implement, sustain, and spread enhanced recovery practices.
