The four toolkits on the topics listed below were developed through the Texas Hospital Association Foundation’s Critical Access Hospital Quality Improvement Program to help critical access hospitals throughout Texas improve quality outcomes in those areas. The toolkits contain policies, procedures, assessment tools, implementation plans, evaluation methods and other resources selected based on recommendations from the hospitals involved with this project and research conducted by THAF. These resources are a small representation of the resources available, both online and through your own peer-network, and we encourage further exploration to ensure identification of tools that will support your hospital.

The resources included in the toolkits are offered as examples and do not constitute expressed or implied endorsement by the Texas Hospital Association Foundation.
