Consists of 333 patient safety programs available in the United States as of November 28, 2011. Developed by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) from internet searches in 2010 and 2011, the catalog captures a snapshot of available programs at the time. Because new programs are continually being developed, old ones retired, and others revised and improved, interested readers should check the relevant websites for up-to-date information.
