Project BOOST - Better Outcomes by Optimizing Safe Transitions

Project BOOST C-Suite Packet:

Implementing a successful Project BOOST® mentoring program requires support from your senior leadership. To obtain support, you will need to clearly explain how your efforts may enhance quality and safety, improve processes and patient satisfaction and impact the hospital’s bottom line. A direct communication line to a senior administrative officer, either by a direct reporting structure or by involving a senior administrator on the team, should be in place before taking any next steps in the process.

SHM has developed a downloadable packet that makes this conversation easier for you. Below are the resources to share when building your case to enroll in BOOST®:
