Reducing Adverse Drug Events and Healthcare-Associated Infections
Adverse drug events (ADEs) and healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are among the most common adverse patient safety events.

We will collaborate with community coalitions and nursing centers to implement process changes that will result in a reduction of ADEs and HAIs.
- Establish medication management collaborations with nursing centers and community coalitions
- Reduce opioid-related ADEs, misuse, and deaths
- Reduce ADEs due to high risk medications
