5-Diamond Patient Safety Program Update

In 2008 the Mid-Atlantic Renal Coalition (Network 5) partnered with the ESRD Network of New England (Network 1) to develop an innovative training and recognition program to assist dialysis providers in increasing awareness and building a culture of safety among patients and staff. The 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program, which is endorsed by ANNA, is a web-based program that provides educational modules designed to train health care professional on various aspects of patient safety. In January 2014 program staff introduced a revised website - www.5diamondpatientsafety.org - that allows for automation of much of the work previously required of the Networks to administer the program.
