    CRICO Grants
    Many patient safety initiatives fail to be adopted and implemented, even when proven effective. This creates the well-recognized know-do gap—which occurs when health care workers know what should be done based on evidence vs. what takes place in practice.

The framework and its findings were published online in the Journal of Patient Safety in April 2023.
