Over the next three years, the grant will allow the institute to continue leading the health care field in creating strategies that make lasting improvements to patient safety.
"The NPSF Lucian Leape Institute is composed of the most distinguished leaders in the patient safety field," Steve Blazejewski, president of the Minimally Invasive Therapies Group at Medtronic, said. "We are pleased to help enhance the Institute's work to improve patient care and safety and support the role of the health care workforce in delivering the safest care."
This marks the first time that the institute has received unrestricted funding.
