Loss Prevention Grant Application
Lifespan Risk Services has been recognizing leaders and change agents in our system by providing funding for innovative efforts to reduce liability exposure through education and research projects for many years. The core purpose of the Loss Prevention Grant Fund is to decrease liability, while improving quality of care and patient safety. Applications for this grant are open to all Lifespan employees and eligible affiliated physicians.
This year priority will be given to proposals focused on multidisciplinary/multi-departmental/multi-affiliate strategies aiming at reducing diagnostic/treatment errors, omissions, delays, and care communication. The Loss Prevention Grant Fund provides a source of funding for projects relating to the following:
- Professional liability (malpractice): Liability incurred as a result of errors in performing professional clinical services. In recognition that practitioner wellness affects professional practice and patient outcomes, grants related to this topic are encouraged.
- General liability: Liability related to premises, operations, and products.
- Patient and staff safety efforts: Liability related to processes and/or systems that impact the way we care for our patients and families.
Funds that are awarded are to be used in the one-year grant fund period and are not intended to cover capital purchases, ongoing operational expenses or to fund permanent positions.
Applications must be submitted no later than Friday, May 20, 2022, at 5 p.m. If you have questions about this form, please contact Christina Gomes-Ferreira at 401-444-8251 or by email at email@example.com.
