To continue the UHF/GNYHA quality improvement partnership in three key areas: strengthening and expanding quality improvement education and training for doctors and nurses through the Clinical Quality Fellowship Program; reducing avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions by improving and standardizing transitions between hospitals, nursing homes, and home care; and addressing antibiotic resistance by helping hospitals develop antibiotic stewardship programs—and expanding that work to outpatient settings.
