The Patient Safety Innovations Program (PSIP) provides expert guidance to grantees. In return, PSIP grantees are expected to fulfill several requirements to strengthen their work and promote the program, including attending meetings, presenting progress, and collaborating with liaisons. PSIP staff will contact grantees to schedule meetings. Below are the expectations:

1. Attend bi-monthly PSIP work-in-progress meetings.

Participate in discussions between your project team, staff liaisons, and interested members of the UW Medicine Patient Safety and Quality Coordinating Committee.

Provide project milestone updates and identify strategies to overcome implementation.

Note: The first meeting occurs two months after project launch. 

2. Submit brief quarterly project updates.

Use project update template provided by PSIP staff to report project progress each quarter.

Submit final project report two months following the completion of your project. 

3. Work with project liaisons from the UW Medicine Patient Safety and Quality Coordinating Committee.

Work with your assigned Quality and Safety Liaison.

Work with your assigned Research Liaison.

Note: The initial meeting with each liaison is scheduled within the first month of project launch; subsequent meetings are scheduled at each liaison's discretion.

4. Present a project update to the UW Medicine Patient Safety and Quality Coordinating Committee.

Present a project update to this committee within the last six months of funding.

5. Understand that PSIP funds are a one-time award to support promising pilot work.

Funds do not imply commitment from UW Medicine to fund ongoing related work. 

6. Credit the Patient Safety Innovations Program (PSIP)  as the funding source in all project-related presentations and publications.
