Over the next two weeks the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative (INQRI) is commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the influential Institute of Medicine (IOM) report "To Err Is Human” with a series of blog posts

Today, the series featured a compelling video interview with Ramanan Laxminarayan of Extending the Cure – a Pioneer grantee. Dr. Laxminarayan discusses how hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) have evolved over the last ten years; the role that antibiotic resistance plays in HAIs; and the challenges in changing hospital culture. You can check out the video here.
