Town Hall Calls

Throughout the year, Leapfrog will host Town Hall Calls to provide hospitals and other stakeholders background information about the content of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. In addition, we often host Town Hall Calls on special topics that we are considering for future versions of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. You can find information, including presentations and recordings, from all of our Town Hall Calls below. Questions about Town Hall Calls can be directed to our Help Desk.


2022 Town Hall Calls

Informed Consent: AHRQ’s Tools as a Pathway to a High-Quality Informed Consent Process

Hospitals and other stakeholders are invited to a free Town Hall Call to learn more about Leapfrog’s approach on informed consent. Cindy Brach, a Senior Healthcare Researcher at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, will present AHRQ’s Making Informed Consent an Informed Choice: Training for Health Care Leaders, a tool available to hospitals and ASCs interested in implementing strategies to ensure patients are provided with a high-quality informed consent process. AHRQ’s resources on informed consent can support hospitals as they evaluate their own practices in responding to the new optional subsection 1C: Informed Consent.
