The Veterans Affairs Safety Learning System® (VA SLS) Collaborative is a growing community of VA health care systems moving beyond mortality review and simply counting and trending adverse events. We are defining, measuring, and improving those process of care and system failures that contribute to the suffering and harm of our veterans and health care providers.
This is more than just a research and learning collaborative. This is a community of practicing providers and quality staff who seek to create a safe space for healthcare workers to research and create practical, meaningful, and lasting change for our honorable population of veterans to live happier and healthier lives as civilians.
